Introduced in January 2014, Young at Heart Culture Club is a monthly event for over 55s, held at the gorgeous Erskineville Town Hall in Sydney’s Inner-West. Each month features exclusive daytime screening and/or talk or workshop. It’s the perfect hub for seniors community to chat about movies and the arts over free tea and biscuits!
Taking place every last Thursday of the month, tickets are only $6 for seniors (over 55s) and $10 for everyone else.
Young at Heart Culture Club is run by The Festivalists, the non-profit team behind Young at Heart – Australia’s Seniors Film Festival.
April Program: Still Mine
Still Mine is an exquisitely mounted and deeply affecting story about one man’s determination to create a suitable home for his ailing wife. Veterans James Cromwell (Best Actor, 2013 Canadian Film Awards) and Genevieve Bujold are nothing short of magnificent in the story of a couple with a deep and complicated past. When her health begins to fail, Craig chooses – against the odds and everyone’s advice – to build a new, more suitable home for Irene rather than leaving the farm they have lived on for decades.
