“I’m so sick of people saying that love is just all a woman is fit for. I’m so sick of it.” In Greta Gerwig’s thrilling new telling of Louisa May Alcott’s classic 1868 novel, four young women come of age in the aftermath of the American Civil War, each determined to live life on her own terms.
Our Dementia Friendly Screenings aim to provide a fun and inclusive experience, enable people with dementia and their carers to attend the cinema in a safe and comfortable environment, and give them the chance to get out and socialise with people from the local community and other people in a similar situation.
These events are open to everyone, but are enhanced to suit the needs of people with dementia: The lights are left on low, there will be no adverts, and people are free to move around, take a break if needed or sing along to any musical numbers!
We have free tea, filter coffee and biscuits from 10.30 so people can come and get settled into the space, then the film starts at 11am (with no adverts or trailers). There will also be an interval for 20 minutes half way through the film when free tea & coffee will be served again.
Tickets are £4 per person, with accompanying carers free and can be booked in person at the cinema, over the phone on 0871 902 5747 or online at www.picturehouses.com. Wheelchair spaces are limited so please book in advance to make sure they are available.
