The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel
"A sterling cast and a fine balance of comedy and poignancy make this story of unfulfilled Brit retirees discovering new life in India a pleasure-filled journey." (David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter)
Enticed by advertisements for the newly restored Marigold Hotel, a group of British retirees decide to “outsource” their retirement and move to less expensive and seemingly, exotic India. They soon discover that the hotel is a shell of its former self and isn’t as luxurious as they had believed. With an all-star cast that includes Bill Nighy, Judi Dench, and Maggie Smith, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is a witty, up-lifting, feel-good comedy.

When Beth's (Diane Keaton) distracted and self-involved husband (Kevin Kline) loses her beloved dog, she enlists her friends (played by Dianne Wiest, Richard Jenkins and Mark Duplass) and a mysterious woman to help find her darling companion. Directed by Lawrence Kasdan (The Big Chill), Darling Companion features strong performances from legendary actors portraying characters grappling with their own aging and the changes that come along with it.

Odds Against Tomorrow and Westchester Jazz Orchestra Sextet
This suspenseful bank heist film was Harry Belafonte’s project, beginning to end. He produced and starred in it, brought director Robert Wise and blacklisted screenwriter Abe Polonsky on board, and hired the Modern Jazz Quartet’s John Lewis to create the brilliant score. With its restrained rhythms and spare piano (Bill Evans) and vibraphone (Milt Jackson), the music sets the tone for sizzling tensions between down-on-his-luck jazzman Belafonte and his partner in crime, racist war vet Robert Ryan.
PERFORMANCE: Westchester Jazz Orchestra sextet —with Jay Brandford (alto sax), Marvin Stamm (trumpet), Harvie S (bass), Andy Watson (drums), Patricia Franceschy (vibraphone), and Artistic Director Mike Holober (piano)—will play tunes from the film and other music by John Lewis and Milt Jackson.
RECEPTION AND EXHIBITION: Join us in the Jane Peck Gallery for great New Orleans–style food and the opening of “Hot Jazz/Cool Art,” an exhibition of album covers created for Bob Erdos, producer of Stomp Off Records. The show will be on view on all "Jazz Sessions" evenings.
