Pass the popcorn; it’s Movie Night at the Uxbridge Senior Center! Starting in March, seniors and friends can enjoy watching a movie together in the comfort of the senior center. Each month on the second Tuesday, a movie will be playing from 6:30 to 8:30. The first films have been selected by our resident expert, Rick Lewis and movie enthusiast, Cathy Thornton.
Showing on March 13 is “The Quiet Man” starring John Wayne and Maureen O’Hara to usher in St. Patrick’s Day. On April 10, come see “It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World” with its all-star cast. May 8 features Hitchcock’s “Rear Window,” starring James Stewart and Grace Kelly. “Dead Men Don’t Wear Plaid,” starring Steve Martin and featuring a host of stars in cameo appearances, will be shown on June 12.
Transportation may be available for some of these Movie Nights, if there is sufficient interest with reservations required in advance. Check in with the Uxbridge Senior Center at 508-278-8622 regarding van availability. Refreshments will be provided by the Uxbridge Elderly Connection. Suggestions for films for July and beyond are encouraged; otherwise, Lewis and Thornton will continue aiming to select movies folks will enjoy.
Sure, you can watch a movie on TV at home, but how much more fun to see it with friends. No need to sign up; just come and enjoy!
