Fridays, 2/22, 3/29
1 – 4 PM in the Assembly Room
Facilitator: Emily Edrington
People of all ages are invited to join us for the
first meetings of the Senior Center’s Aging in
Film Club. At each meeting, we’ll watch a film
and follow it with a discussion, exploring how
aging issues and older adults are represented in
popular films.
This spring, we’ll draw selections from The
Center’s Classic Film Fridays series, which
is currently progressing through Academy
Award Best Picture winners in chronological
order. We’ll examine two semi-recent films
that feature themes of aging and older adult
characters: American Beauty on February 22 and
Million Dollar Baby on March 29. Among other
questions, we’ll ask how well these two films
have aged, themselves.
The Senior Center’s Aging in Film Club is
presented in partnership with the University of
Iowa Aging and Longevity Studies Program.

which chronicles the extraordinary journey of
a group of colorful older adults as they discover
the world of the internet through the guidance
of teenage mentors. Their exploration of cyberspace
is catapulted to another level when 89
year-old Shura decides to create a YouTube
cooking video. A spirited video competition
for the most views evolves as the cyber-seniors’
hidden talents and competitive spirits are
revealed. This inspiring doc provides insight
into the wonderful things that can happen
when generation gaps are bridged, proving you
are never too old to get ‘connected.’
Following the film, The Center will host its
own intergenerational tech help session and
social hour. Volunteers will offer one-on-one
and small group technology assistance to
participants, so bring your devices and your
questions, or just stick around for some lively
