THE over-55s from across Radius Housing’s sheltered schemes are set to enjoy a series of big screen classics with the launch of a dedicated programme of film favourites to be shown at the Queen’s Film Theatre in Belfast.

Radius at the Ritz will see a range of classic and modern films shown on the big screen between now and July 2019.

The 1954 Christmas romantic comedy White Christmas was the first chosen to kick off the series, which is sponsored by Fusion Heating and MW Advocate.

The initiative will run until next summer with a different movie chosen each month.

Speaking at the launch, Grainne Mullin, Community Investment Manager at Radius Housing, said: “This initiative will provide a regular social event for over-55s living in Radius independent housing schemes in Belfast, Newcastle, Portadown and right across Northern Ireland."

Radius Housing provides housing, care and support to over 33,000 homes for people in Northern Ireland. The schemes include caring for the vulnerable and elderly, residents with dementia, learning disabilities, drug and alcohol dependency and those who are homeless.
