Special Screenings of the 1959 Classic Some Like it Hot

Think of a visit to Miramonte as a summer cocktail: mix one part Hollywood's Rat Pack glamour, a shot of desert beauty, fill to the top of the glass with the perfect pool deck setting, and stir up the perfect desert night. Yes, summer is HOT in the desert at the Miramonte Resort & Spa and it's time to celebrate the heat with special screenings of the 1959 Hollywood classic Some Like it Hot with Marilyn Monroe, Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon.

Beginning Thursday, August 20 at 8:30 p.m., hotel guests and local residents can enjoy an evening in the desert, with the perfect summer time temperature for lounging in the pool or relaxing poolside during Miramonte's Dive in Movie nights. Complimentary floats are available on a first come basis and private cabanas are offered at reasonable rates for the evening. Some Like it Hot will run every Thursday until September 3, beginning at 8:30 p.m.

Libations mirroring the atmosphere of the 1950's will be offered including the Rat Pack Martini, Jack Lemontini, Rusty Curtis, Marilyn Mojito and of course a classic Whiskey Sour.

The Grove Artisan Kitchen will be serving poolside specialties reminiscent of 1959 for those wishing to enjoy dinner or appetizers before or during the movie. Additionally, attractive room rates are available from $89.00 per night and guests at Miramonte's Dive in Movie Nights will receive a complimentary $25.00 spa gift card to enjoy services at The WELL Spa.

"We love honoring the Hollywood glamour of Palm Springs and wanted to celebrate the heat with showings of this humorous and academy award nominated classic Some Like it Hot during our famous Dive in Movie nights at Miramonte," stated Stan Kantowski, General Manager, Miramonte Resort & Spa.
