Event description: Calamity Jane is being shown on Monday 6th February. Screenings are limited to 50 places so pre-booking is recommended.

Tickets are only £5 per head and include a tea or coffee during the interval. Carers are free. We kindly remind customers that pastoral care is not provided at these screenings. If you would like to book or require more information, please visit or contact us at

Dementia Friendly Screenings are open to all but will be more relaxed, with lights on and sound at a lower level. We have specially trained ushers on hand to assist. Our dementia friendly screenings are specifically tailored to meet the needs of customers with dementia. This will include a lower sound level, improved and clearer directional signing and specially trained volunteers on hand to assist. There will also be an interval at each showing with tea/coffee and biscuits available. This will offer a chance to socialise with other patrons and to discuss and inform the film programme for future screenings. Singing and dancing and getting up and moving around during these screenings are all encouraged with no fear of disrupting other customers. 
Our other Dementia Friendly screening dates will be:

  • Jailhouse Rock – Monday 6th March, 1.30 pm
  • Some Like It Hot – Monday 3rd April, 1.30 pm
