We’re so excited to start our regular, monthly, dementia-friendly screenings! They’ll take place every second Wednesday of the month.
Our first screening, which will form part of the borough wide Hackney Dementia Festival 2021 - Part 2, will be the life-affirming classic -
Singin’ in the Rain on Wed 8th Sept @ 11am, with a special introduction from Singing For The Brain.
Though the film will start at 11am, our cafe and facilities will be open from 10am for early arrivals, tea, coffee & cake!
You can book tickets here.
And as with all our accessible screenings, carers go free.
Singing for the Brain is a service provided by Alzheimer’s Society which uses singing to bring people together, and though our event will be a full screening of the film, there will be lots of opportunities to join in with classic songs such as Singin’ In The Rain and Good Morning. We’ll be providing free song sheets!
You can find out more about Singing for the Brain and their amazing work here.
We’re a dementia-friendly venue and all our staff have been dementia trained via the Alzheimer’s Society. We’ve adapted the space and made adjustments to make sure the space is as safe, helpful, and happy as possible.
Please be aware, the cinema is on the first floor and there is no lift. We do have a medium-wide (1100mm) stairwell with handrails on both sides, and we’ve had several guests with limited mobility join us for films. However it does rely on walking up the stairs (with assistance as required).
Our staff will be ready to lend a hand wherever needed.
