Note about Website Currency:  Please be aware that some information on the Resident Website is out of date.  There are several contributing causes for this situation, include the major changes in the Administrative department, with many staff members no longer at Canterbury Woods and others trying to fill in.  Also, each new year brings new people to the Resident Council and its committees, and it takes a while for them to get into the routine of providing their information to the Website and putting it in an appropriate format.  As you know, keeping the Website current is a high priority.  We hope things will improve in the near future and we will be able to continue to provide current information in all areas of the Website.

  Movie Nights

Tuesday movie - 6:15 p.m. in the Lounge

DINNER AND A MOVIE DATE!   If the idea of DINNER AND A MOVIE appeals to you, you can participate in a well-planned/well-timed dinner in our Dining Room and then take a short walk just across the lobby to the Lounge and view a movie.  Our CW Movie Committee works diligently to present GOOD MOVIES for your pleasure - and, they are FREE for you to enjoy right here!  Of those who responded to our Movie Survey last year, most indicated that they would like to view recent releases or “good” movies.  This we try to do.  However, they are not always available for 1-3 years as well as being relatively expensive.  If our budget allows we often buy them or get the next best thing. Our goal is to present a variety of genres each month as well as to intersperse Movie Night presentations of “oldies” with newer films.  

MEMO!  We often draw films from our extensive collection of DVDs, many of which are donated for the pleasure of our Canterbury Residents.  Last year, the Committee spent close to $1,000 on new films and replacements of those found missing from our DVD Library.  This is a reminder that DVDs may ONLY be checked out in the Large Print Library Sign-Out sheet by CW residents.  Please also remember to cross out your selection on the sign-out sheet when you return DVDs.  Many thanks for your participation and cooperation!  Incidentally, our 28 page listing of all our DVDs is currently being updated and will be available in the Large Print Library as well as on the Resident Website.
