One of the communities that Senior Living Experts works with had a very special weekend.

Our local Chicago CBS News station was at The Breakers on Friday to cover a premiere of the new movie PLAY THE GAME, a romantic comedy starring Andy Griffith and Doris Roberts. The movie is based on the life of a former resident and his relationship with his grandson.  The movie is about a ladies man who teaches dating tips to his lonely grandfather who lives in a retirement community.  Marc Fienberg wrote and directed the film and was inspired by his grandfather’s life and finding love at The Breakers.

Derrick Blakely, CBS 2 news reporter, shot a news segment at The Breakers and interviewed the director’s mother and several of our residents in the dining room.  They had a special screening of the movie for the residents in their Movie Theater.

If you missed the broadcast which aired on Friday, August 28th on the 6 p.m. news, you can view the segment on the CBS:
