LO­CAL se­niors are en­cour­aged to take a trip to the cin­ema next week for a spe­cial screen­ing of Jasper Jones.

Grand Cine­mas Currambine and Mad­man Films are host­ing a Devon­shire morn­ing tea at 10am be­fore the ad­vance screen­ing at 11am on Fe­bru­ary 24.

“Grand Cine­mas recog­nises that mem­bers of the se­nior com­mu­nity some­times don’t al­ways have a friend or loved one to come to the movies with,” Lou Jamieson said.

“The aim is to pro­vide an en­vi­ron­ment for se­niors not only to come to the movies but to also in­ter­act with oth­ers and de­velop new friend­ships. The morn­ing tea will pro­vide this op­por­tu­nity for those who are liv­ing on their own or who have lim­ited con­tact with fam­ily and friends.

“We have some se­niors that come to the cin­ema and some days, the only per­son they talk to is the crew that work here; we want to try and im­prove their morn­ings a lit­tle.”

Cost is $10 for Sil­ver Screen mem­bers and $12 for WA Se­niors Card hold­ers. Grand Cine­mas Currambine plans to con­tinue this ini­tia­tive with more Se­niors Sil­ver Morn­ings in the fu­ture.
