Creative Aging

BIMA has made a priority of serving its community at all stages of life and our Creative Aging programs exemplify this effort. With programs created for those looking to just get out, flex their creativity, and keep their mind fresh and calm to those dealing with early-stage memory loss and their caregivers, BIMA is proud to offer the following:

Meet Me At The Movies

BIMA is thrilled to announce the return of Meet Me At The Movies, offered in partnership with the Frye Art Museum. Entertaining, inspiring, and uplifting, Meet Me at the Movies is an interactive film program that celebrates the wonder of film and its ability to connect us with memories. Designed for people with memory loss and their care partners, this program can be enjoyed by all adults. Theme-based clips from classic and contemporary films are shown, followed by facilitated audience discussion.
