Better Hearing Australia Central Coast (BHACC) is hosting an open captioned screening of the newly released movie, ‘A Beautiful Day in the Neighbourhood’, at Avoca Beach Picture Theatre on February 24.
The screening is a part of the 2020 NSW Seniors Festival.
The silver screen is a much loved source of entertainment for all generations, but older people and those with hearing problems often can’t keep up with films unless they’re captioned, and sadly, captioned screenings are few and far between.
As part of the festivities, the BHACC has arranged for the first 100 people to book their tickets to receive a free choc-top.
BHACC is a not-for-profit volunteer organisation that supports, educates and advocates for Central Coast people with a post-lingual hearing impairment.
Hearing Loss Management groups are held weekly and provide the opportunity for social interaction and to learn lipreading.
“BHACC hopes many local seniors with hearing loss will come along and enjoy this captioned movie screening,” said BHACC Committee President, Jeannine Asciak.
