The Prospector Theater, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, provides meaningful employment to people with disabilities through the operation of a premium, first-run movie theater located in the heart of historic downtown Ridgefield, Connecticut. Their employees, known as Prospects, live a higher quality of life through meaningful employment, and are encouraged to sparkle, shine, and turn their passions into professions.
In their own words:
“Through the operation of our movie theater, Prospects are paired with jobs that highlight their strengths and passions – or as we call it, sparkle. Each new release generates dozens of opportunities to use our sparkle as we transform ordinary moviegoing into memorable experiences. We offer products that people want – good movies, fresh popcorn, entertaining pre-show content, clean facilities, and unparalleled customer service! When you see movies with us, you create the thousands of business operations and interactions that fuel the Prospector’s mission of meaningful employment for adults with disabilities!”
