We feel incredibly fortunate to have been able to use our time and expertise to bring the excitement and magic of the home cinema experience to the children of Derian House Childrens Hospice.
With Together for Cinema we designed and installed a state of the art cinema room at the hospice and now children and young people confined to wheelchairs, or even hospital beds, will be able to enjoy the full cinematic experience alongside their family and friends, without leaving the building.
The ribbon was cut to officially open the new cinema yesterday (Thursday, 29 August), by Wigan actor Ben Batt – who appeared in Channel 4 comedy drama Shameless and Marvel blockbuster Captain America: The First Avenger.
As always we worked with our partners at Ultamation who created a brilliant custom Crestron user interface that was fun and simple for any of the children to use.
Stephen Nevison of Intuitive Homes:
“I am so grateful to all of the manufacturers who have donated products and would like to give a special thanks to the ones who really went over and above what anyone could have expected and made my initial wish-list into a reality. It's been an absolute pleasure working at Derian as all of the staff have been so accommodating and lovely to be around.
“I'm incredibly proud of the results we have achieved and can't wait for the children and families to use it. This has been an amazing experience so far and more rewarding that I could have imagined and I'm looking forward to the years of supporting and working with Derian House in the future.”
