WHAT IS A DEMENTIA FRIENDLY SCREENING?
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
Wheelchair spaces are limited so please contact Box Office for further information on 0161 912 5616
