Screening is dementia-friendly

Screening is dementia-friendly

HENLEY’S Regal Picturehouse cinema has introduced a series of dementia-friendly screenings.

Scheduled to run every six weeks, the next screening is on Wednesday at 11am, when the 1944 MGM musical Meet Me In St Louis will be shown.

A spokesman for the Boroma Way venue said: “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, take a break if needed, or sing along to any musical numbers.

“We have free tea, filter coffee and biscuits from 10.30am, so people can come and get settled into the space. There will also be an interval for 20 minutes halfway through when free tea and coffee will be served again.”

Tickets are £4 per person, with accompanying carers free, and can be booked at
