Storyline

In its heyday, the Lorraine Hotel saw its fair share of guests, laughter and good times. But now that the aging inn is well past its prime, owner Lillian Garber must decide whether to repair the Catskills landmark - or sell to developers. As Lillian and her zany staff enjoy what may be the Lorraine's best- and last-summer season, they realize that not even a wrecking ball can demolish life's sweetest treasures. A slice-of-life comedy about old friendships, new romance, and letting go of the past. Written by Echo Bridge Home Entertainment

Did You Know?

Goofs

During the scene where the kids are all sitting in the bedroom talking, when Molly describes a "boondocker", Bobby sets the end of a "cheese doodle" snack aflame. The second time you see him holding the snack, the amount that has burned has actually decreased, and the flame is smaller. He would have had to pick up and light a second piece, but you see no indication of this. See more »

Very nice

Small, sweet, enchanting movie. It's real nice to see a movie with original characters, no explosions and no big stars. Drama that puts a smile in your face.
