Dementia Friendly Screenings
Our Dementia Friendly Screenings aim to make cinema more accessible to local dementia communities.
We provide a fun and inclusive experience to enable people living with dementia, their families and carers to attend the cinema in a safe and welcoming environment.
The screenings take place bi-monthly on the final Monday of the month at 1.30pm. The programme is a combination of specially selected classic movies and musicals.
The screenings are enhanced to suit the needs of people living with dementia; the lights are left on low, there are no adverts or trailers and the audience is allowed to move around - and sing along to any musical numbers should they wish to. Visitors will be supported by trained Dementia Friends staff.
The cinema will be open for an hour before the screening starts so that people can familiarise themselves with the space, and there will be an interval halfway through the film for free tea, coffee and biscuits to be served.
Tickets are £3.90, with a free place for an accompanying carer.
Wheelchair spaces are limited so please contact Box Office for further information.
