THE TAKEAWAY: Thank you to Rachel Main, from the Alzheimer’s Association and co-founder of Creative Aging San Francisco  and Mary Scott, who has been teaching film as a passion for this insightful evening. They offered us a look ‘behind the scenes’  – the power of movies to foster an inclusive experience for people with different abilities (see  ‘Movie Moments at the Vogue‘) , a place to connect with others that transcends cultural and social differences and lastly a place that allows us to tap into our love for play and creativity.   The evening started with a clip from ‘Singing in the Rain’ and somehow many of us walked away with the determination to do more singing and dancing!
