Great idea: The Cineplex Erding has given away cinema seats and asked for donations. In this way, 1000 euros were collected for the Sophienhospice.
Erding – The team of the Cineplex cinema Erding has donated 1000 euros to the Sophienhospiz. The money comes from the cinema seat giveaway.
As reported, the cinema has renewed the seating of the largest hall (cinema 3). In addition to the best Dolby Atmos sound and 4K laser projection, it has been given new armchairs that offer a very special seating experience with D-Box motion seats, premium reclining sofas and front-row chaise longues.
The red velvet armchairs, which had been installed since the opening of the house on Dorfener Straße in 2000, were given away – combined with a request for a donation to the hospice, writes Karin Glück from the Cineplex in a press release. The response was great. All the armchairs found a new home within two days. This raised 980 euros, which the cinema team topped up.
Glück handed over the cheque together with theatre management assistant Meike Brünig. She accompanied her husband Christian, himself a long-standing, popular cinema employee in Erding, in the last weeks of his life in the Sophienhospice before he passed away in February this year. "That's why the donation to this house and the great team was a matter close to our hearts. We believe that Christian would have liked the cinema seat campaign and the great willingness of our customers to donate," said Brünig.
