Spend Valentine’s Day with Marilyn Monroe

NewportFILM will present a special Valentine’s Day double feature of “Love, Marily,” a 2012 documentary directed by Liz Garbus. The film features modern day celebrities talking about the impact Marilyn Monroe continues to have on their lives.

According to Entertainment Weekly, “’Love, Marilyn’ is a miracle of a documentary that lets us see who Marilyn Monroe really was.” Show times are 6:30 and 8:45 p.m. at the Jane Pickens Theater on Touro Street in Newport. Tickets are $12.

Christie’s restaurant has partnered with newportFILM. If a couple books their Valentine’s dinner that night at the restaurant, they will receive a free bottle of wine with the purchase of two entrees.

Adam Braver, author of “Misfit,” a novel based on the last days of Monroe’s life, will be in attendance to introduce each film.
