The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

Friday, 3/20 – Thursday, 4/2

Starring: Judi Dench, Maggie Smith, Bill Nighy, Richard Gere

Now that The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is full up with its long-term residents, co-managers Muriel Donnelly (Maggie Smith) and Sonny Kapoor (Dev Patel) have a dream of expansion, and they’ve found just the place: The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. With plans underway, Evelyn and Douglas (Judi Dench and Bill Nighy) venture into the Jaipur workforce, wondering where their regular breakfast dates will lead. Meanwhile, Norman and Carol (Ronald Pickup and Diana Hardcastle) navigate the swirling waters of an exclusive relationship, as Madge (Celia Imrie) juggles two very eligible suitors, and recent arrival Guy Chambers (Richard Gere) finds a muse in Sonny’s mother, Mrs. Kapoor (Lillete Dubey) for his next novel. As his marriage to Sunaina (Tina Desai), the love of his life, quickly approaches, Sonny finds his plans for the new hotel making more claims on his time than he has available. Perhaps the only one who may know the answers is Muriel, the keeper of everyone’s secrets. As the big day nears, family and guests alike find themselves swept up in the irresistible intoxication of an Indian wedding.

What We Do in the Shadows

Friday, 4/10 – Thursday, 4/16

Starring: Cori Gonzalez-Macuer, Jemaine Clement, Jonathan Brugh, Taika Waititi

Winner of the Audience Award at the 2014 Toronto Film Festival

In this comedy that's been called "a hilarious send-up of The Real World, but with vampires," housemates Viago, Deacon, and Vladislav are three vampires who are trying to get by in modern society. From paying rent and doing housework to trying to get invited into nightclubs, they have problems just like anyone else—except they’re also immortal and must feast on human blood. When their 8000 year-old roommate Petyr turns 20-something human hipster Nick into a vampire, the guys must guide him through his newfound eternal life. In return, they are forced to learn a thing or two about modern society, fashion, technology and even—GASP!—the internet. In What We Do in the Shadows, frequent collaborators Taika Waititi and Flight of the Conchords' Jemaine Clement share writing, directing, and acting duties—all with precise comedic timing. The end result is a hysterical mockumentary that unearths a secret, supernatural society where friendship and camaraderie are just as important as feasting upon the flesh of mortals.
