Different types of movies carry different kinds of meanings and inspirations. We believe watching movies is not only an entertainment, but a way to improve quality of life. Therefore, we are now holding a “Movie Screening and Sharing” session once every two weeks for our members, which provides them a platform to relax and reflect. Movies carry various knowledge and trivia that give us uncommon yet interesting topics during social occasions. Besides, scenes that echoes real-life situations can raise our members’ attention towards their inner voice and overlooked needs. Most importantly, movies allow our members to release from pressures and anxieties. They would surely be cheered up to face challenges after getting relief and support from watching movies.
