If you pine for the golden age of Hollywood when going to the movies was a glamorous affair, join us on this Adventure: an exclusive pre-screening of Fox Searchlight Pictures' The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, with a fabulously exotic party.
Head to the AMC Empire 25 on the South side of 42nd Street in Times Square, where our team of movie-goers will be waiting to introduce us to our enticing evening. Once we check in, we'll have an elaborate tea tasting awaiting courtesy of Mighty Leaf. We'll sip on six to eight varieties of loose-leaf teas, including earthy, herbal, traditional, spicy, fruity, and sweet varieties that are all steeped to perfection. We'll also be primed for a trip to India, and—while there won't be a plane waiting—we'll delve into the Indian culture with henna tattoo artists who will provide entertainment and bodily adornment. There will also be live music (complete with colorful scarves).
With our mind sets pointed east, we'll head to our seats and settle in for an exclusive screening of the film, a comedy that has already received rave reviews from the UK. Starring Judi Dench, Bill Nighy, Dev Patel, with Tom Wilkinson, and Maggie Smith, the film follows a group of British retirees who decide to outsource their retirement to a seemingly exotic hotel in India. They arrive to find the palace a shell of its former self; however, while they find their living quarters to be less luxurious than imagined, they become forever transformed by the experience. After an evening as exotic as this, we may never experience the movies in the same way again.
