10 Movies That Shaped the Boomers @ Walter and Leonore Annenberg Theater | Washington | District of Columbia | United States

Baby boomers have always had an intimate relationship with the movies. Born in the age of Saturday matinees, boomers came of age just as the movies began to awaken to the radical changes taking place in American culture.

In a special Newseum program co-sponsored by AARP, movie critics Arch Campbell, Ann Hornaday and Bill Newcott present their choices of the top 10 movies that shaped the boomer generation.

Each critic will reveal their three choices and together they will present a unanimous choice. Clips from each of the films will be played during the program.

Campbell has reported on movies, theater, entertainment and the arts since the 1970s and has appeared regularly on Washington television for more than 40 years.

Hornaday has been a movie critic for The Washington Post since 2002 and was previously the critic for The Baltimore Sun and the Austin American-Statesman.

Newcott, the creator of AARP’s Movies for Grownups, reviews movies weekly at AARP.org and his Movies for Grownups Radio Show, now in its 13th year, is heard on 600 stations nationwide.
