Crowd audience looking at screen

For the third consecutive year, AARP and the Chicago Latino Film Festival have teamed up to feature films for the 50+ population!  This year’s Movies for Grown Ups segment features six films breaking the stereotypes associated with the 50+  showing viewers that age doesn’t matter,  and that adventure, second chances, and fun can happen at any time in our lives!

Running from April 9 to April 23, the festival is featuring over a 120 full-length and short films from Latin America, Spain, Portugal and the United States. An array of films are featured in the festival’s 31st year,  including science-fiction and crime thrillers, multiple Oscar entries, documentaries, Rio de Janiero International Film Festival winners,  and a number of debut films.

All films will be run in their original language with English subtitles. Following most screenings, audience members will have the opportunity to join in discussions with local and international film makers.

AARP members, with valid ID, receive a discounted admission fee throughout the course of the festival, which will be hosted at AMC River East 21 Theaters: 322 E. Illinois St., Chicago.
