Social Activities: Innovative Community Participation
Participants enjoy a movie with snacks. Options provided before each session. Mix of older and newer movies provided. Will need a subscription service to be able to provide variety of movies.
Archer st will be providing a safe and more suited place to view movies rather than the overstimulating and often inaccessible movie theatres. Accessibility, comfort, and direct support will be the key components to ensure this service is different from standard movie viewing. Additionally, movie viewing facilitates opportunities for individuals to engage in social groups with similar interests in a safe and neutral space.
