Monsters vs. Aliens
Saturday, May 26, 2012
Playing Saturday, May 26 at 10:00 am – 25 Cent Kids Matinee
Director: Conrad Vernon, Rob Letterman
Cast: Reese Witherspoon, Hugh Laurie, Will Arnett, Seth Rogen, Kiefer Sutherland
When a radioactive meteor hurtles into Susan Murphy (voiced by Reese Witherspoon) on her wedding day, she is transformed into a towering, platinum-haired giant. Taken away by the government and dubbed “Ginormica,” Susan is introduced to other scientific oddities, including the amphibious Missing Link (Will Arnett), the dim blob B.O.B. (Seth Rogen), and the brilliant, bug-headed Dr. Cockroach (Hugh Laurie). These “monsters” are released from captivity when a massive alien robot sent by the scheming Gallaxhar (Rainn Wilson) appears in San Francisco and clearly does not come in peace. With little time to adjust to her new stature, Susan must learn to work with her strange allies to avoid an all-out extraterrestrial invasion. The vocal talent, which also includes Stephen Colbert as a daft, keyboard-playing American president, is top-notch, adding plenty of personality to the super-sized visuals and eye-popping effects. Conveying an easy-going sense of humor that will delight kids and amuse adults, this is fun family fare that is sure to leave everyone thoroughly entertained. The Grand Traverse Pie Co. will give away a bike to a lucky 5 to 12 year old attendee before the film, in support of the Traverse Bay Children’s Advocacy Center and in partnership with Einstein Cycle.

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel
Saturday, May 26, 2012
Playing at 1:00, 3:30, 6:00 and 8:30 pm.
Director, John Madden
Cast: Judi Dench, Tom Wilkinson, Maggie Smith, Bill Nighy
The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel follows a group of British retirees 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.
A refreshing, mature fairy tale with a top-notch cast.
-Claudia Puig, USA Today
Charming, delightful and amusing - just what you'd expect from the star-studded cast of veterans.
-Anna Smith, Empire
An ersatz experience, a commingling of forced uplift and exotica.
-Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor
Judi Dench delivers one of her most wide-ranging and moving performances.
-David Denby, New Yorker
