Snap One supports cinema room initiative at Rainbows Children’s Hospice
Snap One has announced that it has played an integral role in providing a free professional-grade movie theatre installation, as gold sponsor of Together for Cinema’s mission to provide cinemas for UK hospices.

Rainbows contacted Snap One in 2021, delivering a standard Together for Cinema installation with extra lighting to create a top class ambience and visual experience.  

Downlights, LED lights, motorized blinds and a fibre optic star ceiling were combined through a Control4 automation system and Infinity Lighting starry sky ceiling panels.. 

The Control4 automation system enables staff to easily turn everything on at once using a Control4 remote, including the special  lighting, AV equipment, motorized window blinds and the Infinity Lighting starry sky ceiling panels. 

The installation took a week to complete, with the room seating up to 10 people. The completed room allows families to schedule movie time with their children. 

Anne-Marie Rosak, head of nursing and clinical operations, Rainbows Children’s Hospice, commented: “For many of those who stay at our hospice, going to a cinema might not be a physical option, or they simply may not feel comfortable making that trip. 

“Now families are able to use this dedicated room at any time during their stay and enjoy full control to make the space suit their needs, whether they want it fun and lively or tranquil and relaxed with the beautiful ceiling of twinkling lights. For many of our young people at the hospice it is about freedom, being independent and choosing whatever films they wish to watch. Previously we used our conference room as a cinema, but that never felt like a real cinema experience. This is much more intimate, and we know it will create wonderful memories for hundreds of families.”
