Silver Screens Matinee : The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

Tuesday, June 21, 12:30pm, Halsey Auditorium, The State Theatre

The film follows a group of British retirees (including Evelyn (Judi Dench), Muriel (Maggie Smith), Douglas (Bill Nighy), and Graham (Tom Wilkinson)) who decide to “outsource” their retirement to less expensive and seemingly exotic India. Enticed by advertisements for the newly restored Marigold Hotel and bolstered with visions of a life of leisure; they arrive to find the palace a shell of its former self. Though the new environment is less luxurious than imagined; they are forever transformed by their shared experiences; discovering that life and love can begin again when you let go of the past.

“Come and enjoy this beautiful historic building, an air-conditioned atmosphere, and a gorgeous and comfortable theater – with a great movie to boot!” says Tara Moylan of The State Theatre. “We are thrilled to offer a selection of weekday matinee films focusing on stories for and about the Baby Boomer generation, which all will enjoy. The first up will be The Bucket List and the second will be The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel – stay tuned to see what movies The State Theatre will offer all summer long.”
