The Alzheimer’s Society & Waterside are proud to present Dementia Friendly Screenings.
Celebrating 75 years since VE Day
On V.E. Day in 1945, as peace extends across Europe, Princesses Elizabeth and Margaret are allowed out to join the celebrations. It is a night full of excitement, danger and the first flutters of romance.
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.
1 hour 37 minutes + 15 minute break.
