From January we are going to be running a monthly programme of Dementia Friendly Film screenings. They will take place on the third Thursday of the month at 2.00pm. The programme will be a combination of classic movies, musicals and archive films specially selected to trigger memories.
But, our first will be shown at 1:45pm and will be for FREE
Screenings will take place in screen 1, our large art deco screen, newly restored to its art deco glory, to recreate the experience of going to the pictures. This is also easily accessible for wheelchair users.
We will maintain a low level of lighting throughout the screening and can adjust the volume on the film, to suit the needs of the audience. Visitors will be supported by Dementia Friends trained staff.
There will be an interval half way through the film for tea, coffee and biscuits to be served.
We will be showing Calamity Jane on Thursday 19th January 1:45pm. You can see a full calendar of our Dementia Screenings here.
