Event description: While this showing of “The King & I” is noted as Dementia Friendly, it is open to everyone. When we have Dementia Friendly screening, the content is the same but there are a few little changes. Many people living with dementia feel isolated, cut off from society and their local community. An afternoon at a relaxed cinema screening can re-engage people living with dementia and leave them feeling enriched.
A regular cinema screening can be daunting with loud music, dark shadows and inaccessible seating. At a relaxed seating, audiences can sing, dance and move around in a relaxed and warmly lit environment with more comfortable sound levels and trained ushers on hand who understand patrons’ needs. At Wem Town Hall we bring you regular Dementia Friendly films which are open to anyone to attend.
