The Ridgefield Playhouse will continue its senior movie series this fall, offering 6 hand-picked films FREE to the seniors in our community.
Not a senior? That’s okay. The movies are free for anyone who would like to enjoy an afternoon watching a movie on the big screen.
In an effort to provide our seniors with free daytime entertainment, the Ridgefield Playhouse launched the Senior Cinema Series earlier in 2023, and was met with countless smiling faces from patrons. “We tried something new and our senior community responded with gratitude and positivity for the series, so we decided to keep it going,” said Robin Ronai, manager of Films and Rentals at the Playhouse. The Playhouse is happy to once again partner with the Ridgefield Commission on Aging which brings much needed services and activities to our older community.
