Age of Love Movie Screening and Panel Discussion
February 15 @ 2 p.m. - 4 p.m.
THE AGE OF LOVE follows the humorous and poignant adventures of thirty older adults who sign up for a first-of-its-kind speed dating event exclusively for 70- to 90-year-olds. From anxious anticipation through the dates that follow, it is an unexpected tale of brave older adults who lay their hearts on the line, and discover how emotional needs and desires change — or don’t change — from first love to the far reaches of life.
