Driving Miss Daisy (1989)
February 10 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm$5
Area 1 Agency on Aging presents the award-winning 1989 film, “Driving Miss Daisy,” the character of Miss Daisy (played by Jessica Tandy) feels vulnerable, anxious, and frustrated because she needs transportation and is unable to drive herself. By driving her to the Piggly Wiggly store and elsewhere, the character of Hoke Colburn (played by Morgan Freeman) performs an invaluable service for her, one that is needed by an increasing number of seniors in Humboldt County.
Fortunately, the Area 1 Agency on Aging (A1AA) has a program that provides free rides to medical appointments and the grocery store for those 50 and over. When there are enough volunteer drivers, this important service can provide rides from as far north as Trinidad, as far south as Scotia, and as far east as Blue Lake.
To celebrate these valuable volunteers, and to inspire new drivers, A1AA is collaborating with the Eureka Theater for a matinee showing of the film, “Driving Miss Daisy” on February 10, 2019.
Tickets are $5.00 all ages. Current volunteer drivers with the program get in free. All proceeds benefit the continuing restoration of the Eureka Theater.
Doors open at 1:30, showtime at 2:00 PM.
1989 | Rated PG | 100 min.
