On November 2, 2017, the Free Seniors Movie Series will begin again, at the Third Street Cinemas in downtown Santa Rosa. As usual, a choice of three or four movies will be shown on the first Thursday of each month at 10 a.m. and will continue through June 7, 2018. No tickets are needed, and the doors open at 9:30 a.m.

It is not possible to publicize an advance list of films, but for a list of the three or four movie titles for each month, call the Third Street Cinemas Recording the week of the Series: 525-8909 x 2.

The movies are free for seniors, 60 and older. Detailed Flyers are on display in the lobbies of the Roxy 14, the Airport 12, the Summerfield, and the Third Street Cinemas in Santa Rosa, as well as the Raven Film Center in Healdsburg. They have also been distributed to all of the Senior Centers, the Council on Aging, and various other facilities for seniors, including retirement homes, senior apartment complexes, and senior mobile home parks.

The Third Street Cinemas is located at 620 3rd Street between Santa Rosa Avenue and “D” Street (behind the Third Street Aleworks). It is only 1-1/2 blocks from the Downtown Transit Mall, where city and county buses arrive and depart. There are also two Parking Garages close: one directly across from the theatre (no elevator), and the other around the corner on “D” Street (basically, behind the theatre). The rate is 75c per hour, but those with handicapped placards may park free at parking meters on the street.

The Series is sponsored by Santa Rosa Memorial Park & Mortuary/Eggen & Lance Chapel, Kobrin Financial Services, and Hired Hands Homecare.
