EMAGINE ENTERTAINMENT INTRODUCES
DEMENTIA FRIENDLY SCREENINGS
Emagine Partners with Dementia Friendly Saline, Waltonwood Cherry Hill and Waltonwood Carriage Park to Provide a First-of-its-Kind Movie Experience For Those Living with Dementia and their Caregivers
Exclusively at Emagine Saline and Emagine Canton.
Dementia Friendly Screenings include exclusively selected classic movies and musicals presented in a unique setting with softer sound and ambient lighting for the comfort of people living with dementia as well as their caregivers and friends. Guests are able to interact with the presentation and encouraged to talk back, clap, tap their feet, sway, sing along, and get up and dance. Dementia Friendly Screenings will take place once a month exclusively at Emagine Saline and Emagine Canton.
Emagine has partnered with Dementia Friendly Saline, Waltonwood Cherry Hill and Waltonwood Carriage Park to provide guests with a special door to door experience guided by a team of dementia friendly team members. These staff members and volunteers will act as guides to greet guests curbside and escort them to a welcome table and then to their designated auditorium. They will provide assistance with seating, restrooms, and will also guide guests to a special designated quiet space for guests if needed. As part of the screenings, guests will receive a souvenir booklet, a goodie bag and door prizes at each screening event.
Guests are encouraged to arrive 45 minutes in advance of the show to participate in a pre-show mingling event which will include a light buffet of finger foods and a fun discussion about the movie. The doors open at 1:15 for each screening and the movie begins at 2:00.
