Little Theatre Bath are very pleased to be continuing their new regular Dementia Friendly screenings in Bath and would love your help in spreading the word to people living with Dementia and their family, friends and carers. The next screening will take place on Mon 1st April – 11.00 am with a screening of The African Queen.
The 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 left on low, there will be no adverts, and people are free to move around and take a break if needed.
There will be free tea, filter coffee and biscuits from 10.30 so people can come and get settled into the space, then the film starts at 11am (with no adverts or trailers). There will also be an interval for 20 minutes half way through the film when free tea & coffee will be served again. The screenings will be once every month on the first Monday of the month, showing a selection of old classics, musicals and some more recent films.
Tickets are £4 per person, with accompanying carers free and can be booked in person at the cinema, over the phone on 0871 902 5747 or online at https://www.picturehouses.com/cinema/The_Little/Whats_On?filter=DementiaFS
Wheelchair spaces are limited so please book in advance to make sure they are available.
Please do pass the word on to anyone you know who might be interested.
