Senior Matinees

The Dryden Theatre presents free film screenings to seniors (55+) on Monday afternoons at 1:30pm, March through October. Our senior matinee screenings are now fully incorporated into our regular film calendar. Cinematic classics from the George Eastman Museum collection will be presented on film, the way they were originally screened and were meant to be seen.

This series is made possible in part by the Daisy Marquis Jones Foundation and the Monroe County Office for the Aging.
