NEXT Wednesday Star Cinema will celebrate what would have been Marilyn Monroe’s 90th birthday.
The Eaglehawk cinema is hosting two little known Marilyn films – Ladies of the Chorus (1948) and River of No Return (1954).
Ladies of the Chorus was the first major role in Marilyn’s career. She plays a burlesque queen who falls in love with a wealthy socialite.
"It's quite possible that this film has not been seen on the big screen in Australia for a very long time, if at all,” Star Cinema programming manager Hannah Morton said.
The same night, Star Cinema will screen River of No Return, which sees Marilyn play a woman abandoned in the American wilderness.
"River of No Return features some gorgeous singing by Marilyn, who sports a fabulous blonde wig and some amazing costumes," Morton said.
Marilyn Monroe’s 90th birthday feature is at Star Cinema on Wednesday, June 1 from 6.30pm.
Tickets for a single movie are at at Star Cinema’s regular prices. A double feature ticket costs $20 for adults.
