The Alzheimer’s Society & Waterside are proud to present Dementia Friendly Screenings.
Laurel and Hardy, the world's most famous comedy duo, attempt to reignite their film careers as they embark on what becomes their swan song - a grueling theatre tour of post-war Britain.
On Wednesday 16 October, there will be a Dementia Friendly Screening at 14:00 and a screening in the evening at 19:00.
DEMENTIA FRIENDLY SCREENINGS
Dementia Friendly screenings aim to make cinema more accessible to local dementia communities by providing 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 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 – or sing along to any musical numbers!
• The cinema will be open for half an hour before the screening starts so that people can familiarise themselves with the space.
• There will be a short break halfway through the film for free tea and coffee to be served.
Tickets are £5.00, with a free place for an essential companion if required
