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.
John Madden. 2012. 124 m. PG-13. UK. Fox Searchlight.2:25 PM 5:10 PM 7:40 PM 10:10 PM
Rejected by his longtime companion, a refinery worker sets off with his young daughter on an aimless journey across the Po Valley. Despite encounters with various women, he finds he can’t escape the memory of the one he loves. This is early Antonioni, raw and sensual, with a profound emotional energy rising from a desperation that culminates in il grido, the anguished scream of the title.
Michelangelo Antonioni. 1957. 116 m. Italy/USA, Italian with subtitles. Kino Lorber Films.2:30 PM 5:00 PM
A phenomenon in France, where it shattered box-office records to become the second most successful French film of all time, Intouchables tells the true story of the unlikely friendship between a quadriplegic aristocrat (François Cluzet) and his unconventional Senegalese caretaker from the projects (Omar Sy). Critics are applauding breakout star Omar Sy, who received the Cesar Award for Best Actor for his performance.

Hard Times: Lost on Long Island
We've all heard too many stories of people losing their homes after losing their jobs during this recession. But these stories aren't usually from leafy Long Island suburbs, the birthplace of the post-WWII suburban American dream. That’s the focus of this startling documentary about four families—white-collar, well-educated people with nice homes and six-figure incomes—whose middle-class life was foreclosed upon as long-term unemployment turned their dreams into nightmares. "If we can't provide the promise that Long Island has always held, that promise of shared prosperity—if all of that is going to disappear," asks filmmaker Marc Levin, "what have we got?" A rare film on the ongoing crisis. Courtesy HBO Documentary Films.

The House by the Cemetery
Lucio Fulci, the Italian Godfather of Gore, pulls no punches in this brutal tale of a family of three who unknowingly moves into a house of horrors where something unspeakable is creeping around the basement. Rabid bats, decapitated mannequins (who bleed!), and pubescent poltergeists delivering cryptic warnings are mere prologue to what happens when they make their way down those cellar steps. Not for the squeamish!
Lucio Fulci. 1981. 87 m. NR. Italy, Italian. Exhumed Films.9:50 PM
