Dementia Friendly White Christmas at Cineworld


Nov 15, 2017 #Cineworld, #Dementia

A FESTIVE Hollywood classic is the latest offering in a Middlesbrough cinema’s Dementia Friendly series.

Cineworld Middlesbrough’s screening of White Christmas starring Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye and Rosemary Clooney will take place on Monday, December 11.

Dementia Friendly screenings enable people living with dementia and their carers to attend the cinema in a safe and comfortable environment, giving them the chance to get out and socialise.

Screenings are open to everyone, but are enhanced to suit the needs of people living with dementia: ​during the film low lights are left on inside the auditorium, the volume of the soundtrack is reduced and it’s fine for members of the audience to express themselves.

The staff on duty for these screenings have become Dementia Friends to help provide support before, during and after the screenings, as well as making the venue generally more Dementia Friendly.

Wheelchair spaces are limited so advance bookings are recommended. A flexible refund policy is in place.

Cineworld Middlesbrough’s Dementia Friendly screening of White Christmas will take place on Monday, December 11 from 11am, with doors opening at 10.30am.

Bookings can be made in person at the Box Office or at www.cineworld.co.uk
