THE SECOND BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL
Apr 28 @ 7:30 pm – 7:30 pm

(UK 2015) Director: John Madden. Screenplay by Ol Parker. Cast: Maggie Smith, Judi Dench, Dev Patel, Bill Nighy, Penelope Wilton, LIllete Dubey, Richard Gere, David Straithairn.

Don’t hold your breath waiting for Hollywood to catch on that there’s a growing audience for movies about people over 70 who are glamorous, witty, and romantically inclined! Luckily the British do it up right, serving a frothy farce-with-a-heart starring national treasures Maggie Smith, Judi Dench, Penelope Wilton, Bill Nighy and more. The sequel to the very popular Best Exotic Marigold Hotel brings back Dev Patel and Maggie Smith as co-managers of a colorful, if somewhat shabby, hotel in Jaipur. Since a collection of silver-haired British ex-pats have moved in, Smith and Patel get the idea of opening a ìsecond bestî hotel to fill their growing number of guests. 123 min.

“a rare, optimistic portrait of aging that suggests it can be a productive, erotically charged time of life.” – Ann Hornaday, Washington Post.

The Oscar-Nominated Short Films 2015: Live Action
May 1 @ 7:30 pm – 7:30 pm

(2015) Directors: Talkhon Hamzavi and Stefan Eichenberger, Michael Lennox and Ronan Blaney, Oded Binnun and Mihal Brezis, Mat Kirkby and James Lucas, and Hu Wei and Julien Féret.

This year’s crop of Oscar-nominated shorts takes viewers on a magical carpet ride around the globe, revealing a world that is both wildly diverse and instantly recognizable. In Switzerland, a young Afghan immigrant is introduced to punk (Parvaneh). At a busy Tel Aviv airport, a Danish visitor mistakes an Israeli woman for his driver, and she does not rush to correct his error (Aya). Two boys in Britain dream of running a farm after adopting a couple of adorable baby chicks (Boogaloo and Graham). A Chinese photographer taking pictures of Tibetan nomads in front of changing backgrounds feels a mystical connection to their lives and culture (The Butter Lamp). And the winner is: The Phone Call, a charming 20 minute British film that follows a shy woman at a helpline center (Sally Hawkins), who has no idea that a phone call from a mystery man (Jim Broadbent) will change her life. 123 min.

The Oscar Nominated Short Films 2015: Animation
May 2 @ 2:30 pm – 2:30 pm

(US, 2015) Directors include Torill Kove, Patrick Osborne and Kristina Reed, Marieke Blaauw, Joris Oprins, Job Roggeveen, Robert Kondo and Dice Tsutsumi, and more.

Animated films can tell stories that never could exist in live action, and this year’s collection of Oscar-nominated shorts from around the world includes some of the best we’ve seen! There’s the pig who keeps a windmill going to protect his town (The Dam Keeper); a woman who magically travels through time when she listens to a song on a forgotten 45 (The Single Life); and a French caterpillar who relies on the help of her fellow insects (Sweet Cocoon). Representing, of course, is the winner of the Academy Award for Best Animated Short: The Feast, a great cartoon about a man whose love life is seen through the eyes of his loyal dog. 72 min. Recommended for ages 8 and up.

WHITE GOD
May 3 @ 2:30 pm – 2:30 pm

(Hungary, 2014) Written and directed by Kornél Mundruczó. Cast: Zsófia Psotta, Sándor Zsótér.

If you’re looking for a Disney-esque movie about a girl and her lost dog, better look elsewhere. But if you’ve been looking for a film that is part social commentary, part revenge fantasy, that features 250 trained dogs racing through the streets of Budapest and won the Un Certain Regard Award at Cannes – then stand in line! Hungary’s White God tells the story of a mixed-breed dog named Hagen, who is separated from his human friend (a young girl played by Zsófia Psotta), and mistreated by a new owner – until he joins a revolutionary pack of wild dogs. No dogs were injured in the making of White God, and all 250 canines were given the Palme Dog Award at Cannes.

“The radicalness of the movie is that he [Hagen] doesn’t need to be like a person for you to be on his side. He is a dog, and that’s all he needs to be.” – Manohla Dargis, New York Times. A New York Times Critics Pick.
