Our dementia-friendly screenings are programmed in partnership with the ‘A Life More Ordinary’ Project at the Dukes Theatre, Lancaster. ‘A Life More Ordinary’ is a 3-year project led by The Dukes, which aims to improve the lives of people with dementia and memory loss, and their friends and families, by providing fun, creative activities and film screenings in an adapted environment.
At a dementia-friendly screening there will be no adverts or trailers and the lighting will be slightly raised throughout the film. There will be an interval roughly half-way through. Although these screenings are particularly designed to be accessible for people with dementia, they are open to the general public too.
Please note that pastoral care is not provided at these events. A friend, family member or carer must also attend.
With thanks to Iceland Foods who have kindly provided pre-screening refreshments for all customers attending dementia-friendly screenings at all our cinemas. So please join us for pre-show drinks and there will also be snacks in the interval!
Tickets may also be purchased in person at the Box Office.
We also offer a programme of audio described screenings, and screenings for those who are hard of hearing.
