Friday, July , 2 – 3:45 PM : The Grand Budapest Hotel

Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel recounts the adventures of Gustave H, a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel between the Wars, and Zero Moustafa, the lobby boy who becomes his most trusted friend. The story involves the theft and recovery of a priceless Renaissance painting and the battle for an enormous family fortune—all against the back-drop of a suddenly and dramatically changing Continent.

Please note, the dialogue is fairly quiet for much of the movie, and it may be hard to understand.
