Ely Cinema is very pleased to be able to offer two Dementia Friendly screenings in June & July with the support of the BFI’s Film Audience Network.
Thursday 29 June : 10.15am (doors) film starts at 10.45am Beauty & The Beast (PG)
Dementia Friendly screenings aim to make our independant cinema in Ely more accessible to local dementia communities by giving you a fun and inclusive cinema experience to enable people living with dementia, their families and carers to attend the cinema in a safe and welcoming environment.
These screenings are open to everyone but the screenings are run to better suit the needs of people living with dementia: the lights are left on low, there are no adverts or trailers and you're allowed to move around – or sing along to any musical numbers! – should you want to. The film will start at 10.45am, doors and bar are open from 10.15am. There will be a short interval half way through for you to stretch you legs.
The Maltings bar will be open serving tea, coffee and biscuits half an hour before the film starts to give people the chance to meet and socialise with others, and to familiarise yourselves with the cinema space.
Films will be announced shortly and tickets will be on sale in the next few weeks. We hope you'll support our pilot screenings so that we can make these a regular monthly feature in our programme.
