Tickets are £4 per person (accompanying carers free). The doors will open at 10am, as we will have free tea, filter coffee and biscuits and the chance for people to familiarise themselves with the cinema for half an hour before the film.  There will also be a 20 minute break halfway through the film. 

Our Dementia Friendly Screenings aim to provide a fun and inclusive experience, enable people with dementia and their carers to attend the cinema in a safe and comfortable environment, and give them the chance to get out and socialise with people from the local community and other people in a similar situation. 

These events are open to everyone, but are enhanced to suit the needs of people with dementia: The lights are up a little and the sound down and there will be no adverts. Staff members have also attended Dementia Friends training sessions. As we are keen to get the word out to people who might find these screenings beneficial, please do pass the word on to anyone you know who might be interested.
