Dementia Friendly Screenings


The Harlequin Theatre & Cinema is introducing Dementia Friendly cinema screenings to our monthly schedule.

Dementia Friendly screenings make cinema more accessible to those suffering from dementia, their families and carers. We provide a fun and inclusive experience to enable people living with dementia to attend the cinema in a safe and welcoming environment.

Our Dementia Friendly 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 can move around or even sing along.

For half an hour before the film free tea, coffee and biscuit are available so people can meet and socialise with others as well as familiarising themselves with the cinema.  A representative from The Alzheimers Society will be present for people to speak to if they wish.

Tickets are just £4.00 per person, with accompanying carers going free.
