An event 70 years in the making!
HOW TO MARRY A MILLIONAIRE is celebrating seven decades since its world premiere next month at the Saban Theatre in Beverly Hills, formerly the FOX Wilshire. The film premiered on November 04, 1953, with a who’s who of attendees including Marilyn Monroe, Lauren Bacall, Humphrey Bogart, and Cecil B. DeMille, not to mention Debbie Reynolds, Mitzi Gaynor, Rock Hudson, Shelley Winters and more! Not only was it a star-studded premiere for the film, it was the second movie to premiere in the new technology CinemaScope.
To honor the occasion, the Los Angeles Historic Theatre Foundation is throwing a party on Saturday, November 04, 70 years to the day since the film premiered! The red-carpet event will open doors at 5:30pm for all the pre-show festivities including hosting a book signing with author, historian, and All Things Marilyn Podcast Co-Host Elisa Jordan with advance copies of her new book, HELLO, NORMA JEANE: THE MARILYN MONROE YOU DIDN’T KNOW, an exhibit of Marilyn Monroe memorabilia from the movie, cocktails with light food, and more to be announced in the coming days. The show begins promptly at 7:00pm followed by a panel conversation with special guests.
