The Cinema Arts Centre joins a growing number of independent community-minded theaters promoting accessibility to film for those living with dementia and their care partners.

Making Memories at the Movies, sponsored by Goidel Law Group, Brandywine Living, and the Alzheimer’s Association, Long Island Chapter is a unique program designed for people living with dementia and their care partners. Individuals of all ages will enjoy clips of classic films followed by guided conversation and reminiscence. Recognizing that movies have the power to spark memories and create emotional connections, Making Memories at the Movies presents an opportunity to engage in discussion while socializing with others in the natural setting of The Cinema Arts Centre.

Making Memories with Music,  sponsored by Gurwin Jewish Family of Services, and Star Multi Care Services, is our expansion of the very successful Making Memories at the Movies series facilitated by Marcy Rhodes.  Our programs helps to spark memories, make connections, and provide other therapeutic benefits.  Expanding the availability of support for these residents, helps them to remain active and vital members of our community.  Including musical performances gives us the opportunity to engage local artists in a program that brings great benefits to an underserved population with unique needs.
