The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel 

When: Sat., June 1, 9 p.m. 2013
Price: $5

Providing an AARP twist on the European holiday genre, this 2011 film rode a veteran cast to critical and box office success for director John Madden. Stalwarts Judi Dench, Bill Nighy, Maggie Smith and Tom Wilkinson, looking online for an inexpensive yet romantic retirement spot, fall for the photoshopped images of a hotel in Jaipur, India, run by the plucky Dev Patel. Disappointed at first that they're not in a Merchant Ivory film, the cast comes around to the sincerity of the staff of the dilapidated hotel and the sights and customs of Jaipur. It might be the worst kind of post-colonial fantasy, but you'll find yourself saying "Awww" by the end. —Chris Vitiello
