Special Showing of Still Alice at Fine Arts Theatre: Community Awareness & Opening Up the Conversation: Dementia & Alzheimer’s Disease

It’s time to wear purple, the official color of the Alzheimer’s movement Go Purple, and view the newly released film, Still Alice, based on the bestselling novel by Lisa Genova, starring Julianne Moore in the role of Alice, a 50-year-old Columbia linguistics professor diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s Disease.

Moore’s performance has earned rave reviews, including wins for a Golden Globe for Best Actress-Drama, a Critics’ Choice Movie Award, a SAG Award, a BAFTA Award (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) and a nomination for an Academy Award, among other accolades.

There will be three showings of the film on Feb. 19 at 1 p.m., 4 p.m., and 7 p.m. at a reduced fee of $5.00 per ticket at the theater. It’s also an opportunity to learn more about local resources, chat with professionals and individuals in the field of memory loss, raise community awareness and open up the conversation about dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.  Discover more about what’s available for support and help for those with memory loss and their caregivers here in Buncombe County.
