Senior Center Debuts Film Club in May

The Pasadena Senior Center is beginning the new Screening Mimis Film Club in May, with premiers taking place the first and third Tuesday of every month at 3 p.m. in the Scott Pavilion to watch provocative films followed by lively discussions.
Classics, film noir, cult films, documentaries, shorts, foreign films, animated films and more will be selected democratically by club members. Each screening will be researched and its hidden history presented prior to each viewing. Popcorn and other refreshments will be provided.
The first film on Tuesday, May 1, will be “Ramona” (1936, NR) directed by Henry King and starring Loretta Young and Don Ameche. A young woman who is half Native American and was raised by a wealthy family falls in love with a Native American employee of the household, and he with her, against both families’ wishes.
Anyone 50 and older is invited to join the club for only $5 a month. No membership to the Pasadena Senior Center is required to attend. For more information about the club or to join, email mmeovary@aol.com.
