March 28 – Free “Popcorn & a movie” | A screening of Mimi & Dona – the “poignant, heartbreaking and, at times, humorous documentary” you’ll want to see.

March - mimi and dona

The Pennsylvania Link to Aging and Disability Resources, in concert with The Arc – Lancaster Lebanon, invites you to come to this first of a monthly series. This first film screening, Mimi & Dona, asks the question: What happens when love runs out of time?

For a 92-year-old mother, Mimi, who has cared 64 years for Dona, a daughter who has an intellectual disability, it means facing the inevitable—the likelihood that she will not outlive her daughter and the need to find her daughter a new home.

The “popcorn & a movie” events are free to attend and will be held on the FOURTH Wednesday of each month. The room at The Arc of Lancaster Lebanon’s new location at 116 West Airport Road – Suite A, Lititz, PA accommodates 30 so we do ask you to RSVP so we will not have overflow issues.

There’ll be time for discussion about each month’s movie topic.

Next month’s “popcorn & a movie” will be GOING BLIND | Coming out of the dark about vision loss – 81 minutes – Going Blind is a unique documentary film that increases public awareness of sight loss and low vision issues profoundly affecting the lives of more and more people around the world. Director Joseph Lovett has glaucoma, a disease that robs 4.5 million people worldwide of their vision. After years of slowly losing his sight, Joe decides to take action: to investigate how people all over the country respond to vision-loss. Inviting us into the intimate spaces of the visually impaired and blind, Joe takes us into the homes, hospitals, and workplaces of these people.

APRIL 27 – 6:30 -8:00 – RSVP now.
