The screenings are made dementia-friendly through the use of brighter lighting, quieter sound and an interval. They seek to offer a safe space where those who live with dementia and their carers can engage with the community in a calm and happy environment. The Wetherspoons next door is also allowing drinks to be pre-ordered for the interval.
" people can bring a blanket or a favourite cushion, a thermos flask, sandwiches and whatever is going to make them feel comfortable"
