LUNCH AND A MOVIE: The Senior Network’s Lunch and a Movie is on summer hiatus, but there is an interesting lineup of films you will want to see once the program resumes. These get-togethers are held on the fourth Wednesday of the month beginning at noon in the Robinson Room of the Parish House. You are asked to bring your own bag lunch. The Senior Network provides beverages and dessert, as well as fellowship. It’s always a fun afternoon, so plan to attend and bring a friend as well.

On Wednesday, September 27, the movie will be “Lion,” based on a true story about a five-year-old boy who becomes lost while traveling with his older brother on a train in India. He ends up alone in the urban jungle of Kolkata and later is adopted by an Australian couple. More than two decades later, new mapping technology prompts him to search for the family he left behind.

On Wednesday, October 25, the Senior Network will show “The Founder,” a biopic profiling Ray Kroc, the salesman whose canny instincts turned McDonald’s into a global fast-food empire. Michael Keaton has the lead as Kroc.
