Dementia Friendly Screenings
All screenings, including the monthly dementia friendly screenings at the David Lean Cinema in Croydon are suspended until further notice
Following the success of the Dementia Friendly Screenings in 2019, another group of films have been planned at the David Lean Cinema, Katharine Street, Croydon.
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.
The dates and titles of the films are listed below. All but the last film’s performances will start at 11am, with refreshments available from 10.15am with the exception of the performance on Saturday 12 December (start 2pm). Admission is £1 on the door for people with dementia (their carers get free entry). Tea, coffee and biscuits will be available before the screening.
The films have been sponsored by the Sanderstead and Coulsdon Ward Councillors.
