Loughborough’s newest luxury care home is opening its doors to the local community for a special one-day movie experience this September.

Ideal Carehomes’ Woodthorpe Lodge is inviting guests to take a sneak peek at the new home on Saturday 21st September and enjoy some family films in the on-site luxury cinema room.

Due to open to residents later this month, the home will be showing a fun children’s film - ‘Peppa Pig: The First cinema experience’ - at 10am, followed by a movie for the whole family to enjoy - ‘The Greatest Showman’ - at 2pm. Homemade popcorn and snacks will be served throughout the event.

Preet Hundal, Woodthorpe Lodge General Manager, said: “As we gear up to open our new home in a few weeks, we are welcoming the community through our doors to experience what life at Woodthorpe Lodge will be like for residents and their visitors. 

“Our cinema room is the perfect location to sit back, grab some popcorn and enjoy a classic film, and we wanted to make our first ever screening a real community celebration. The event is open to everyone of all ages, and we’re looking forward to welcoming new friends to the home ahead of our official launch.”

Situated on John Boden Way, Woodthorpe Lodge, has seen a £10million investment and will provide 24-hour residential and dementia care for 66 residents. Once fully staffed it will also employ over 50 people.  

Providing high-quality personalised-care on an inclusive fee basis, residents at Woodthorpe Lodge will be able to enjoy the home’s state of the art facilities, which include a hair salon, cinema room and landscaped gardens, as well as a packed schedule of entertainment and events without extra cost.
