Alzheimer’s Society has worked with the UK Cinema Association and the British Film Institute to create a Dementia Friendly Screenings guide for cinemas. Arts Derbyshire was pleased to contribute to the fact-finding process through our dementia-friendly screenings programme, Matinée.
It aims to spread awareness of dementia-friendly screenings and encourages cinemas of all sizes to get involved. It also gives best practice advice on the practicalities of dementia-friendly screenings alongside some helpful case studies.
The guide was launched this week at Hackney Picturehouse and will be available to download shortly afterwards at: alzheimers.org.uk/cinema
