Marigold movie lifts chopper

FLY in to the movies at Tweed Heads to catch a charity screening for RACQ Careflight Service.

The Rotary Club of Coolangatta-Tweed Heads is hosting the movie night, which will feature movie The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.

It will be held on March 18 at Hoyts Cinemas Tweed City from 3pm for a 4pm start, with a percentage of sales going to the organisation.

RACQ CareFlight's Corinne Brown welcomed the funding boost for the not-for-profit group, which relies on donations to keep live-saving helicopters in the sky.

"With each of our life saving missions costing more than $12,500, CareFlight relies on the generosity of the community and we really appreciate the loyal support of the Coolangatta Rotary Club," Ms Brown said.

"We welcome everyone to attend this fantastic community event. It promises to be a lovely afternoon of entertainment and the money raised will provide a helpful boost to our service," Ms Brown said.

Tickets are $25 per person and included a drink and canapes.

The movie stars Judi Dench, Bill Nighy and Maggie Smith.

It tells the tale of British retirees who travel to India to take up residence in what they believe is a newly restored hotel.

The travellers arrive to a hotel less luxurious than its advertisements, but the Marigold Hotel nevertheless slowly begins to charm them in unexpected ways.
