AARP Wyoming will offer a free screening of the movie, “The Intern,” at 7 p.m. on June 5, at The Studio City Cinema on east second street in Casper.
The movie is presented through AARP’s Movies for Grownups series, which seeks to fight social isolation in those age 50 and over. The movie is offered free to the public, with AARP also picking up the tab for popcorn and a soda.
Seating is limited by the size of the theatre, and attendees are asked to register at: http://aarp.cvent.com/events/aarp-wy-mfg-the-intern-casper-wy6-05-18/event-summary-3046aadd116a464695a1f3d7a886db68.aspx.
According to AARP film critic, Bill Newcott, Robert De Niro and Anne Hathaway star in the movie, “The Intern,” with De Niro starring as Ben, a retired, widowed phone book company executive signing up for a "senior internship" position with a thriving Brooklyn online fashion company run by Jules — a hard-driving young executive played to perfection by Anne Hathaway (she of the biggest eyes since Bambi). The film tackles ageism and sexism in the workplace; intergenerational relationships; marital pressures; dating at 50-plus; corporate chicanery; and the infuriating way technology simultaneously links and divides us.
