Applying and intersectional perspective, this chapter shows how techno-ageism is cut through various other dimensions beyond age, especially for economically disadvantaged older women living in a sheltered housing community. In the chapter, the significance of age to the use of technology, and its encroached techno-imaginaries are investigated using the discussions and situated relational dynamics between older women and a young researcher in a cinema club. It shows how older women use technologies, and traces what different technologies do to age considering established ageing imaginaries, which are not only related to technological practices but also to the concepts of the Third and Forth age.
