On August 8, relive one of Marilyn Monroe’s most memorable performances as the Putnam Museum screens a true classic, “The Seven Year Itch”, on the GIANT Screen.

“We love getting the opportunity to screen such memorable classics for our community to enjoy,” said Kim Findlay, president and CEO of the Putman Museum & Science Center. “We’ve received such great feedback from our community when it comes to classic films on the GIANT screen that we hope to incorporate more of these films more periodically into our movie schedule.”

What life will he choose? See this classic play out in true cinematic form – on the area’s largest movie screen!
