You're Invited! AARP Massachusetts and Movies for Grownups Host Free Film Event and Food Drive

And So It Goes image

AARP Massachusetts invites you and a guest to a free AARP Movies for Grownups pre-release screening on Thursday, July 10, of And So It Goes, a new film starring Diane Keaton and Michael Douglas. Come enjoy the film and meet AARP Massachusetts staff, volunteers, and fellow AARP MA members at the event. We’ll have a table there with information about what we’re offering in your community and throughout the state to help every 50+ Massachusetts resident live his or her life to the fullest.



Bring a Non-Perishable Food Item for Donation!

Here's the best part: In addition to seeing a great film, you can do something for others by bringing a non-perishable food item with you to the theatre, which we’ll collect and donate to the Greater Boston Food Bank. Here are the non-perishable food items most needed by the food bank:

  • Dairy: Milk—dried, evaporated, and boxed (such as Parmalat)
  • Protein: Beef stew, nuts, peanut butter, beans, peas (dried or canned), chili, tuna fish, chicken, and salmon (canned)
  • Vegetables: Tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, spaghetti sauce, vegetables (canned), and tomato juice
  • Fruit: Raisins and other dried fruit, applesauce, and any canned fruit in its own juice
  • Grains: Crackers, oatmeal, whole grain rice, all types of pasta, and ready to eat low sugar/high fiber cereal (Cheerios, Raisin Bran, etc.)


Note that the food bank requires that all food donated be sealed, unexpired, and non-perishable (not frozen or refrigerated); prefers non-glass containers for the safety of volunteers; and cannot accept baby food or pet food from a food drive. AARP Massachusetts is proud to support the Greater Boston Food Bank and help end hunger in our neighborhoods.

And So It Goes Movies for Grownups Synopsis:

“In the uplifting comedy, And So It Goes, there are a million reasons not to like realtor Oren Little (Douglas), and that's just the way he likes it—until his estranged son suddenly drops off a granddaughter he never knew existed and turns his life upside-down. Clueless about how to care for a nine-year-old, he pawns her off on his determined and lovable neighbor Leah (Keaton) and tries to resume his life uninterrupted. But little by little, Oren stubbornly learns to open his heart – to his family, to Leah, and to life itself.”
