Arts diary: Hot start to Philharmonic's season of films.

Byline: Philip Key

A NEW season of classic films kicks off tonight on the only cinema screen in Britain - if not the world - that is applauded by the audience. The seminal cross-dressing film comedy, Some Like It Hot, starring Marilyn Monroe, Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis launches the spring film series at Liverpool Philharmonic Hall. The Philharmonic screen's acclaim is due to its ability to rise majestically out of the stage. It is only one of three such screens made by the Walterdaw company. The other two in St Petersburg and Alexandria are no longer operational. This film season is heavily weighted to the Hollywood classics of yesteryear ,and the programme includes Breakfast at Tiffany's this Saturday, The Maltese Falcon (January 22), High Society (January 24), My Fair Lady (January 28), Brief Encounter (January 29). Contemporary films include Il Postino (this Friday), the new version of Graham Greene's The Quiet American (February 7), 8 Women starring Catherine Denude (March 7), Spanish director Padre Moldavar's Talk to Her (March 21), Rabbit-Proof Fence starring Kenneth Branagh (April 17), and Francis Ford Coppola presents Koyaanisqatsi.

Some Like It Hot, at Philharmonic Hall 7.30pm, tickets pounds 5.50, box seats pounds 4.80). Tel: 0151 709 3789
