Laurel MD Hindi Movie Theater

I keep losing the phone number of the Hindi Theater in Laurel, MD. The search engines don't help me when I try to find it on the internet. Once I post this, I hope people will be able to find this post from the search engines.


This phone number usually has a voice recording telling people which bollywood movies the theater is currently playing. I believe the theater regularly shows south Indian movies too. The voice recording also lets you know the showtimes.

And this is the address of the Hindi movie theater in Laurel, MD if anyone needs it.

371 Armstrong Ave
LAUREL, MD 20707

See this Hindi Movie Theater on Google Maps.

If you go there and also want to buy some Indian groceries make sure to check out Eastern Bazaar. Eastern Bazaar is across the parking lot from the Indian movie theater, I believe it is probably quarter to half mile away from the theater. Eastern Bazaar is probably the best Indian grocery store I have seen in terms of big size and cleanliness. The store has an Indian travel agency next door and a movie rental sub-store.

The address of Eastern Bazaar is:

15101 Baltimore Ave Ste 100
Laurel, MD 20707-4661

Used Car Values and Honda

When buying a new car:

"If you’re a short term owner (≤ 5 years) and the car has been redesigned for the new model year, then you’ll be better off paying a bit extra for the newer version.

If you’re a short term owner and the car hasn’t been redesigned, then you might come out ahead with the older model year, but only if you can get a really big discount.

If you’re a long term owner (≥ 5 years) and the car has been redesigned, then buy whichever one you happen to like better — the difference in resale value will be minimal by the time you finally get around to selling."

This all makes sense for every other car manufacturer except Honda. The used car prices on Hondas are ridiculous. They don't go down a bit after 2-3 years. I have seen 2-3 year old civics listed for $14,900. That is almost the same price you pay for a new civic. Where is the depreciation? You can buy used Camrys or Altimas at that price. Why people pay 14k for a used civic? This is beyond me.
