The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel on Monday, January 14
When a group of British retirees decide to “outsource” their retirement to exotic (and economical) India, they soon discover that the Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is not nearly as lavish as its advertisements have promised. Despite this surprise, their new lives will prove to be even more of an adventure than they could have hoped.

Tracker on Monday, February 11
After the Boer War, Arjan van Diemen (Ray Winstone) immigrated from South Africa to New Zealand to begin a new life. He did not expect his reputation as a soldier and a tracker to precede him, and he certainly did not expect the local British army garrison to conscript him in order to find a Maori sailor, Kereama (Temuera Morrison), who has been accused of murder. As the manhunt begins, van Diemen is forced to question whether the accused is actually guilty and if either of them will escape with their lives.
WALLA will show Tracker (R, 102 minutes, 2010) at the West Lafayette Public Library on Monday, February 11 at 6:45 pm.
The Invisible War on Monday, March 11
