TAMPA -

Tampa Theatre is bringing some of cinema's sexiest people back to the big screen, starting Sunday.

The historic theater released the full lineup of films for its "Sex Symbols of the Silver Screen" series, which highlights the work of iconic sex symbols such as Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor and Marlon Brando.

Tickets to the movies, which will run select Sundays through March 17, are $9. Tickets to the silent feature "It," featuring live music on the theater's "Mighty Wurlitzer" organ, are $12.

Here's the full schedule:

Sunday, "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" (1958): Elizabeth Taylor and Paul Newman sizzle and Big Daddy (Burl Ives) rules the roost in this Tennessee Williams' Southern Gothic play.

Jan. 20, "The Big Sleep" (1946): Humphrey Bogart is private detective Philip Marlow in this film that has him falling for Vivian (Lauren Bacall) while trying to solve a case.
