‘Old People Driving’ screens Thursday

By February 23, 2011

Tickets are still available for “Old People Driving,” a documentary by filmmaker Shaleece Haas, that will be screened at 7 p.m. Thursday at the Veterans’ Memorial Theater, 203 E. 14th St. The film stars Herbert Bauer of Davis, who gave up his car keys just weeks shy of his 100th birthday.

Bauer and Haas will attend the screening.

Tickets are $10 each and will be sold at the door. Following the 25-minute film will be a presentation by the Davis Senior Citizens Commission on alternatives to driving for seniors.

Bauer was 99 years old that day, just weeks away from his 100th birthday, and he had been driving for more than 80 years when he finally decided it was no longer safe to do so. Actually, he may not have been entirely convinced that he should no longer drive, but he wanted to stop “before somebody invites me to,” he said.
