Bill Newcott - AARP Expert

Bill Newcott has spent more time in darkened rooms than most people, and that's a good thing when you love the movies as much as he does.

Bill has been writing about cinema for more than 30 years, first as a film critic in New York and Los Angeles, and later as an editor with The National Enquirer and National Geographic magazine.

As the founding father of AARP's Movies for Grownups franchise, Bill created the annual Chaise d'Or (Golden Chair) Movies for Grownups Award. He also hosts the programs Movies for Grownups on YouTube, Movies for Grownups on AARP Radio and Movies for Grownups Presents on RLTV.
