Avon Library film series kicks off Thursday

Daily staff report
VAIL CO, Colorado

The Avon Public Library will kick off the 2012 fall film series with a free screening of the charming British comedy “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel,” rated PG-13, screening tonight at 6 p.m.

“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.

“Now Showing @ EVLD” offers free film screenings throughout the year. Upcoming films in the series include “Safety Not Guaranteed” (Nov. 29) and “Salmon Fishing in the Yemen” (Dec. 13). All film screenings are free and open to the public. Films may not be appropriate for all audiences.
