“It’s the idea that the grandparents can get away and have a good time.”
Freeman Family Funeral Homes is bringing back its Senior Movie next week.
The popular monthly event was on an 18-month hiatus during the pandemic, but will be back 8 p.m. Wednesday, May 11 at Studio 10 Cinemas.
“It’s an extracurricular activity we started probably in about 2005,” said Mike Freeman. “It went off because of Covid, and we’re picking it back up. It’s something we do for the seniors, 50 and older, is the idea. It’s not for the children.
“The idea is the second Wednesday of the month, we open the doors at about 8 p.m. and they come in, have coffee, and we gather for about 45 minutes to an hour and start the movie at 9,” he added. “It’s just a way to give back to the community.”
Pre-covid, the free event typically saw anywhere from 80-210 attendees. Freeman said he isn’t sure what to expect for next week’s turnout.
“It’ll be interesting to see,” he said. “Will people warm up to it and have a good turnout, or will they still be scared of Covid? We don’t know. I think we’ll have a good turnout.”
The movie hasn’t been selected yet. Freeman said they select it the year before according to new releases and what they think seniors enjoy watching.
“Even though it’s free, people will tell you when they don’t like something,” he said.
All the movies featured at the event are new releases. Prior to the movie, various not-for-profits have come in to speak to attendees.
“We do allow Senior Services and other non-for-profits to make announcements,” Freeman said. “Sometimes people from the state come to talk about scams so seniors don’t get involved in those.”
More information about the movie next week and in future months will be available on the funeral home’s website, http://freeman familyfuneralhomes.com, and on the funeral home’s Facebook page.
Freeman said he thinks the idea that started the event more than 15 years ago came from a sales representative.
“Funeral homes are always looking for something out of the box to be a little different,” he said. “Probably one of our sales reps told us it would be a good way to do some PR (public relations) work. I’m sure that’s where it came from.”
The event is hosted by Freeman Family Funeral Homes and has a different cosponsor every month. This month, it will be sponsored by Bishopp’s Appliances.
Bishopp’s Appliances, Sandman Brothers, The Bluebird and several different nursing facilities around the county have all been longtime sponsors of the event.

Singapore’s execution last Wednesday of a mentally disabled Malaysian man for drug smuggling sparked international protests and outrage. Executing a man who no longer threatens his government or community – especially one with a child’s mental capacity – isn’t justice. It’s murder, even if s…
