AOA Movie Day: Elvis

Active adults at YMCA

Active Older Adult Events

to
Olathe Family YMCA
21400 W. 153rd St., Olathe, KS 66061
Join your friends to watch "Elvis" in the Anthology movie lounge. As one of the most iconic rock stars of all time, Elvis Presley rose to the top of the music charts like a rocket. With a life that seemed destined for great things, Elvis was influenced by a magnificent multitude of inspirational factors that diverged greatly from anything the American public had ever seen before. Behind the hit songs, Elvis struggled like any other person and worked with a controversial figure to achieve his goals in the industry. Bring your own snack (popcorn will be provided) and drink if you want one. Space is limited to 18 for this showing so register early at the Welcome Center or online. This event is FREE.
 
*Anthology will require a mask in the common areas.
