Dementia Friendly Screening: Singing in the Rain
In 1927, Don Lockwood has worked his way up from being a song-and-dance man with partner Cosmo Brown to become a top movie star. His on-screen partner, Lina Lamont, who believes that Don loves her for real, needs to have her awful voice dubbed with the arrival of talkies. The girl selected is 'serious' actress Kathy Selden, for whom Don soon falls.
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 biscuits 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.
