Friday, September 21 at 6:30 p.m. and 8:45 p.m. -- THE BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL (2012) Starring Judi Dench, Bill Nighy, Maggie Smith, and Tom Wilkinson; Rated PG-13; 124 minutes; Closed captioned for the hearing impaired.

For a disparate group of English pensioners, retirement takes an unconventional turn when they abandon their homeland, enticed by advertisements for The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, a seemingly luxurious sanctuary for “the elderly and beautiful” in Jaipur, India. On arrival, they discover that the hotel falls somewhat short of the romantic idyll promised in the brochure, but they are gradually won over by the ever-optimistic young manager Sonny, and tentatively embark on a new adventure, finding that life can begin again when you let go of the past.

"A refreshing, mature fairy tale with a top-notch ensemble cast." -- Claudia Puig, USA Today
