Dementia Friendly Cinema Experience

We’ve started attending dementia friendly cinema experiences at The Light Cinema in Sheffield. The dementia friendly screenings are programmed in partnership with a project called ‘A Life More Ordinary’ which aims to improve the lives of people with dementia or memory loss and their carers. The film screenings are shown in an adapted environment. Pre-screening refreshments are also provided compliments of Iceland Foods!

We love how the screenings are of films that our residents enjoyed when they were younger. We’ve been to see South Pacific, and future screenings are of: Guys and Dolls, 42nd Street, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers and Casablanca. The dementia friendly cinema experience takes place once a month. We can’t wait to go back next month!

We even enjoyed some ice cream and chocolate. You can’t beat an authentic cinema experience, it’s much better than watching the telly at home!
