The David Lean Cinema, in partnership with the Croydon Dementia Action Alliance, are organising a series of popular music films throughout 2019.
These Dementia Friendly screenings aim to make cinema more accessible 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 lights are left on low, there are no adverts or trailers and the audience is allowed to move around or even sing along to any musical numbers if they’d like to.
Admission is free for people with dementia and their carers. Tea, coffee and biscuits will be available before the screening.
The dates and titles of the films are listed on the flyer. All but the last film’s performances will start at 11am, with refreshments available from 10.15am. The December pre-Christmas performance will start at 2.30pm, with refreshments available at 1.45pm.
