The Arts Picturehouse, Cambridge run monthly Dementia Friendly screenings.

As part of our commitment to be Dementia Friendly, Picturehouse run monthly Dementia Friendly screenings. Our staff have attended information sessions run by Alzheimer’s Society to become Dementia Friends.

Dementia Friendly Screenings are open to all, but aim to make cinema more accessible to local dementia communities by providing a fun, friendly and inclusive experience for people living with dementia. The lights are left on low, there are no adverts or trailers and the audience is allowed to move around – or sing along to any musical numbers! – should they wish to.

Free tea, coffee and biscuits are served for half an hour before the film to give people the chance to meet and socialise with others, and to familiarise themselves with the cinema space and there is extra signage put up to help you navigate the building. Tickets are at the reduced price of £4 per person, with a free place for accompanying carers.

For details of screenings see website.
