The South Florida Museum's latest Film Fridays series, "Greetings From Florida," continues with the 1959 comedy masterpiece "Some Like it Hot," which, for the record, is set in the Miami but was shot entirely in California.

Directed by the brilliant Billy Wilder and featuring Tony Curtis, Jack Lemmon, George Raft and Marilyn Monroe, "Some Like it Hot" is still wildly hilarious more than a half century after it was made, and, again for the record, the film paved the way for such cross-dressing comedy classics as "Tootsie,” “Mrs. Doubtfire” and “The Birdcage.”

"Some Like it Hot" will be screened in the all-digital domed theater in the Bishop Planetarium. Each week at Film Fridays there is beer, wine, soft drinks and snacks available for purchase.

6 p.m. Friday; South Florida Museum, 201 10th St. W., Bradenton; $5, $3 (member admission); 746-4131; southfloridamuseum.org.
