Maturity and Its Muse, along with the City of Creve Coeur Arts Committee, will host a series of three film screenings and discussions on three Mondays in August. The free series will focus on films that explore positive aging themes. Each film will conclude with an optional discussion led by guest leaders.
August 12: “The Intern”
Academy Award-winning actor, Robert De Niro, stars in this 2015 comedy that follows a 70-year-old widower who decides to leave retirement and jump back in the game by becoming a senior intern at a fashion startup. The post-viewing discussion will be led by Eric Mink, an adjunct professor of film studies at Webster University. Mink is a former columnist for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch and the Daily News in New York.
August 19: “Hello, My Name Is Doris”
Renowned actress Sally Field portrays Doris Miller, the title character in this quirky romantic comedy-drama. The post-viewing discussion will be led by Sylvia Nissenboim, LCSW. Nissenboim provides therapy, coaching and consultation for her clients at Lifework Transitions.
August 26: “Lost in America”
“Lost in America,” a satirical road comedy directed by Albert Brooks, is included in the list of 100 funniest films of all time. The post-viewing discussion will be led by Cliff Froehlich, an adjunct professor of film studies at Webster University and executive director of Cinema St. Louis.
All film screenings will be at AMC Classic Creve Coeur 12, 10465 Olive Blvd., from 1:00 - 4:00 p.m. Doors open at 12:30 p.m.
Thanks to the generosity of AMC Classic Creve Coeur 12 and the City of Creve Coeur, the Silver Screen Series is offered free of charge to the public. These events would not be possible without the support of our community partners: Cinema St. Louis, Oasis, The Harvey A. Friedman Center for Aging at Washington University, and VOYCE: We Empower and Educate.
