The Moviegoer, June 3-9


TCM Big Screen Classics 50th anniversary of writer-director Mel Brooks’ wildly satiric The Producers stars Zero Mostel and Gene Wilder as the title duo whose wild idea to bilk investors with a sure-fire flop hits a snag when the show, “Springtime for Hitler,” becomes an unexpected hit. Fathom Events, selected Cinemark, AMC, and Regal theaters, June 3 and 6, 2 and 7 p.m.; Laemmle Theatres, 7 p.m. only.

Laemmle’s Anniversary Classics Double bill of screen legend Marilyn Monroe’s most quintessentially “Marilyn” movies. In How to Marry a Millionaire (1953), the improbably named Pola, Loco and Schatze (Monroe, Betty Grable and Lauren Bacall) are gal-pals who set out to marry well. In Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953), Monroe gives an iconic performance as Lorelei Lee with the still stunning show-stopper “Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend.” Ravishing brunette co-star Jane Russell gives the movie title a run for its money. Laemmle Theatres, Royal, 11523 Santa Monica Blvd., West Los Angeles; NoHo 7, 5240 Lankershim Blvd., North Hollywood; Playhouse 7, 673 E. Colorado Blvd., Pasadena; (310) 478-3836.
