For the opening of DC Comic’s WONDER WOMAN, the IMAX Theater in the Indiana State Museum will host #EmpowerSaturday for women, their families and friends.
On June 3, the IMAX Theater in the Indiana State Museum will take $1 from each WONDER WOMAN ticket sale, and will split the total to benefit five local organizations that educate, serve and empower women. Throughout the day, the IMAX Theater will also have Wonder Woman appearances, radio remotes, information from Indianapolis women’s organizations, and other activities for moviegoers. Coburn Place, Dress for Success, Girls Inc., Girls Rock! Indianapolis, and The Julian Center will benefit from the June 3 ticket sales.
About Coburn Place
Coburn Place offers supportive services and housing options to survivors of intimate partner violence. They utilize a compassionate model of voluntary and trauma-informed services to focus on the overall well-being of the person while addressing barriers to safety, self-sufficiency and permanent housing.
About Dress for Success
Dress for Success is a worldwide effort to empower women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and development tools. The Dress for Success Indianapolis chapter was chartered in 1999 and has since helped more than 14,000 women across Central Indiana thrive in the work place.
About Girls Inc.
Girls Inc. focuses on giving confidence to girls and responding to the changing needs of girls in the community. Media literacy, economic literacy, adolescent health, violence prevention, and sports participation are also some of the educational topics Girls Inc. covers.
About Girls Rock! Indianapolis
Girls Rock! Indianapolis teaches young women positive self-esteem and self-expression through music education and mentoring. It provides a supportive environment that offers music instruction as well as a variety of workshops and performances.
About The Julian Center
Since 1975, The Julian Center has been supporting victims of domestic violence, assault and other life crises. Their mission is to provide the services survivors need to recover and build a life absent of abuse. The services include counseling, safe shelter, case management, advocacy, education, and housing.
“I think exposing as many people as possible to strong women is important, especially in film,” says Craig Mince, theater manager at the IMAX Theater in the Indiana State Museum. “There’s no better way to do it than while similarly benefitting local organizations who strive to support the same, strong women.”
