OLLI Goes to the Movies
Coming Attraction Theatres, Inc., or CAT, generously provides to OLLI every year 100 admissions to a current release feature film. They also provide a bag of popcorn and a soda for each guest. One of the theaters at the Varsity Theatre or Ashland Street Cinema is exclusively reserved for this OLLI event. Ticket proceeds are used to support an OLLI program as directed by the OLLI Council. In the past, the proceeds have been used to provide partial scholarships based upon financial need and also to establish a rides program where the cost of transportation to OLLI is supplemented. This has made attending OLLI classes convenient and affordable for those with special transportation concerns.
OLLI Night at ScienceWorks
OLLI enjoys a community partnership with ScienceWorks. (www.scienceworksmuseum.org) Several OLLI classes are held at the ScienceWorks Museum, a popular site featuring hands-on scientific learning experiences for kids of all ages. OLLI Night at ScienceWorks is an event where members can socialize with each other over a glass of wine, some light snacks and can enjoy the latest ScienceWorks exhibits and theater presentations.
