"It is all about the Oake Meadows family getting together and having a good time."
Katrina Ball, home manager



Oake Meadows Care Home, in Taunton has officially opened its brand new cinema room and called it ‘Meadows Movies’.

Toy Story took cinema viewers to ‘Infinity and Beyond’ and they could ‘Rewrite the Stars’ with The Greatest Showman.

Katrina Ball, home manager, said: “We are thrilled to have the magic of the movies arrive at Oake Meadows and residents are enjoying the full experience with soft drinks and snacks.

“It’s all about the Oake Meadows family getting together and having a good time.”
