About AARP Movies for Grownups®

AARP's editors created Movies for Growups in 2002 as a regularly-occuring feature. In an industry obessed with youth, the Movies for Grownups column in AARP The Magazine delibrately sought to draw attention to great films that featured 50+ actors, directors or plot themes that spoke to the 50+ moviegoer. The bi-monthly column has now grown into a multi-faceted editorial franchise with content in print, online, on the radio, and on social media - and also brings in-person movie screenings to AARP members in more than 35 communities across the country.
