Special Screening of Old Goats

Looking for something fun to do on a Sunday afternoon in January? We’ve got the answer for you! Vashon Community Care is putting on a special screening of the locally produced movie, Old Goats, at 2 pm Sunday, January 22 at Vashon Theatre. This movie was written and directed by Taylor Guterson (son of Bainbridge Island author, David Guterson, who wrote Snow Falling on Cedars) and also features actress Benita "Bunny" Staadecker who, with her husband Charlie, used to live on Vashon Island. This comedy follows three cantankerous older men (local Pacific Northwest actors, each playing themselves) who refuse to go quietly into the night of retirement and old age. Shot in and around Seattle, Old Goats finds humor in the everyday foibles of retirement life, providing perspective on the golden years. This movie was the only American film to be selected in the top ten movies in the 2011 Seattle Film Festival.

Prior to the start of the movie, Taylor Guterson and Bunny Staadecker will appear in-person to share how the movie came to be, a little background about the three leading actors and where the movie was shot. Old Goats is a benefit for Vashon Community Care. Tickets are $10 and are on sale at Vashon Book Shop, Vashon Community Care and Vashon Theatre.
