Dementia Friendly screening - Doors open 11am, film starts 11.15.
Carers go free.
Feb 22nd: Calamity Jane (1953) - Doris Day and Howard Keel
The story of Calamity Jane, her saloon, and her romance with Wild Bill Hickok. 101 minutes.
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"
