No matter what side of the debate about the Marilyn Monroe statue you fall on, here’s something we can hopefully all agree on — free movies!

Outdoor screening: The Palm Springs Cultural Center is presenting Movies in the Park, a series of outdoor screenings at the new Downtown Park, each one showcasing an iconic Marilyn Monroe film.

Mark your calendar: The series starts with a bang Wednesday, June 15, with The Seven Year Itch at 8 p.m.

  • Gentlemen Prefer Blondes is screened on July 20
  • Some Like It Hot comes to the park on Aug. 17

Special guests: Before each screening, local performance group The Marilyns of Palm Springs will be on hand for fun and photos.

💬 Our take: Before Marilyn Monroe was a flashpoint of heated debate in the city, she was a movie star! What better way to bring everyone together than remembering the woman, and enjoying her movies with your community?
