As for movies to look forward to, Sharon is the one who selects the films, which strikes this writer as a nearly impossible task – is there such a thing as a movie everyone loves? As Sharon puts it, “We get a mixed bag of people. For instance, a lot of people like Science Fiction but a lot don’t. Some like Christian-based movies, others don’t. So we offer a selection. The one thing I make sure is that they aren’t too risqué – we hate it when people feel they need to walk out.” (Sharon tells us that she does choose some R-rated movies, but only after doing the research to find out what prompted that rating.) “And we try to get current films, ones that have been in theaters in the past six-eight months.”
We wondered if there were sure-fire hits for the Silveridge audience: “People love uplifting, feel-good movies,” Sharon replied. “And around the holidays, when families visit, we try to include a Disney movie, something like ‘Frozen.’ Same at Spring Break.” Don added that the video version of Christmas concerts by Andre Rieu have been particularly popular and they hope to continue with another one this season.
Whatever sort of movies you like, there’s bound to be some coming up:
Sharon has already selected 45 films for this season.
All free. And all with free popcorn.
For the Coming Attractions, look for posters at the theater and at the Activities Office, announcing two weeks’ worth of upcoming movies.
