Maui Film Festival’s First Light will present My Week With Marilyn, a film revealing secrets from one unrecorded week of the hugely famous Monroe’s life.
Before the show, Thee Salon will host a silent auction with proceeds going to Women Helping Women. The auction will offer certificates for several different services at Thee Salon.
As part of the silent auction, Thee Salon will dress several women as Marilyn Monroe in custom made clothing by Everything’s Rozy. The pieces worn will be inspired by Monroe at different stages of her life.
Tickets for the film can be purchased ahead at the MACC Box office by calling 242-SHOW or online at MauiArts.org.
