Seniors Citizens Recreate Famous Movie Scenes For Retirement Calendar

Thursday, July 31st, 2014 by morethan

A German retirement community earlier this year created a calendar from famous movie scenes.  The Contilia Retirement Group in Essen, Germany made a great calender with a few of their senior residents.   5000 calendars were printed and were given out to  residents of the senior centre, along with relatives and staff. The  models were interviewed about the project and said it was a lot of  fun to dress up as their favourite actors. The  shoot was done with professional stylists and photographers to make sure everything looked as cool as possible. The  oldest senior involved with the calendar was 98 years old!

Here at More Than Mobility we think this is a fantastic idea and something fun for the models to dress up and feel like movie stars for the day. Below are all the pictures for each month. Our favourite is May – Mary Poppins.  What is yours?
