The Glenn Miller Story is a 1954 American biographical film about the eponymous American bandleader, directed by Anthony Mann and starring James Stewart in their second non-western collaboration. Universal-International’s first public announcements, early in 1953, employed the soon-discarded title, “Moonlight Serenade.”

This film screening is a dementia-friendly event and although is not exclusively for people with dementia, it is particularly suitable for people affected by dementia, their partners, family members and people who care for them professionally. Everyone is welcome but please be aware that there may be people talking during the film, moving around and leaving the cinema.

Pianist in the foyer prior to the film screening.

Tea and cake available from 1pm.
