MARILYN Monroe fans now have the opportunity to re-enact one of the star’s most iconic scenes, right here in Bendigo.
Every Tuesday and Thursday between 10am and 4pm, a subway grate, complete with wind and a 1950s New York backdrop, will be set up in Hargreaves Mall for people wanting to create their own Marilyn moment.
“The Marilyn Monroe exhibition will bring thousands of people to Bendigo and we wanted to provide an activity that would attract people into the Hargreaves Mall,” City of Greater Bendigo acting director of community wellbeing Pat Jess said.
Morley’s Emporium employee Taylor Hughes took time out from work to recreate the bombshell’s scene from The Seven Year Itch.
She already visited and enjoyed the Bendigo Art Gallery exhibition, and said the tourism it had brought to the city was great.
Morley’s Emporium is one of many businesses in the city that has joined in on the fun, selling Marilyn brooches and scarves designed by employees with disabilities.
