What’s happening at The Picture House

Senior Cinema Returns

by Sarah Soliman

On Tuesday, September 28th, Senior Cinema returns to The Picture House with The Eyes of Tammy Faye, starring Academy Award nominees Jessica Chastain and Andrew Garfield! The highly-popular program — made possible in part by a grant from ConEdison — offers seniors a free matinee on Tuesday afternoons, providing a great way to connect with friends over a shared cultural experience. 

Science has shown that the arts and social engagement are essential markers for the quality of life and health of seniors. With community at the forefront of what we do, The Picture House is proud to offer this free access to important and meaningful cultural programming and connection. 

Senior Cinema has been a huge success since TPH first instituted it nearly a decade ago. One audience member shared that the program “provide[s] enlightenment, enjoyment, and above all an asset to our lives to engage in a way that stimulate[s]…” and another told us “it is wonderful to be able to see movies in a welcoming environment with others my age.” 

At any age, cinema gets people out-and-about — enjoying art, ideas, and each other. After a year like no other, the simple pleasure of sharing and discussing a movie together is something none of us will take for granted anytime soon!

We’re open, Senior Cinema is back, and we can’t wait to see you at the movies!
