Age Concern Crosby and the Plaza Community Cinema are putting on their latest Flicks and Friends film next Tuesday (19th) at 1pm.
Hidden Figures is based on a true story about three brilliant African-American women at NASA — Katherine Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monáe).
They serve as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn (Glen Powell) into orbit, a stunning achievement that restored the nation’s confidence, turned around the Space Race and galvanized the world.
The partnership between Age Concern Crosby and the Plaza Cinema received a Community Resilience Grant from Living Well Sefton to provide a monthly films for older people and the wider community.
The aim of the project is to decrease social isolation and increase community cohesion.
Admission to the film at the Plaza Community Cinema in Waterloo is £1 which includes tea/coffee and biscuits.
Chris Dale, Administrator with Age Concern Crosby, says: “Come along and join us and bring your friends. There is NO need to book . Just come along with your £1 on Tuesday at 1pm.”
