Depends what you mean by city, but this site has the following list.

http://www.city-data.com/top75.html

Outside Florida Santa Fe and Honolulu look fairly old. I find the American Community Survey harder to use than it used to be so can't add anything from that for now. I may see you when the storm abates.

Okay looking through the American Factfinder the following metros look to have an over-65 population of over 20%. (I may have missed a few metros with that high a percent though)

Cape Coral-Fort Myers, Florida Metro
Deltona-Daytona Beach-Ormond Beach, Florida Metro
North Port-Bradenton-Sarasota, Florida Metro (One of, if not the, highest as I recall)
Palm Bay-Melbourne-Titusville, Florida Metro

Outside Florida the following looked fairly high, 15.5%-19.9%, for a metro.

Buffalo-Niagara Falls, New York
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
Scranton, Pennsylvania
Tucson, Arizona
Youngstown-Warren-Boardman

Here's another perspective, highest median age which is somewhat useful.
