Popular dementia friendly film screenings in the East Riding
Tuesday 20th July - Parkway Cinema in Beverley. The newly established East Riding Dementia Friendly charity is looking to increase participation at the popular dementia friendly film screenings which are held every other month and are organised by local volunteers for people living with dementia, their carer`s and families.
The films that are screened have a real flavour of nostalgia and humour and have included some of the classic comedies for example “Some Like it Hot” and “The Italian Job”.
Simon Foster a trustee and volunteer with the charity said “We had a good turnout in May with over forty people attending and would like to encourage more people along for the July screening which will be “The Time of Their Lives”, a comedy with Joan and Pauline Collins.”
The films are screened at a reduced volume and there are no advertisements or trailers. Increased lighting and additional signage around the cinema add to the comfortable experience. 
“A morning at the Parkway Cinema in Beverley is much more than just watching a film” continued Simon. “We offer free refreshments on arrival and the chat before and after the film turns it in to an enjoyable social event.  Though most people come along from local East Riding care homes there is an increasing number who arrive from home with their family and friends”. 
“The Time of Their Lives” will be screened at 11.15 am on Thursday 20th July. Arrive between 10.30 am and 11 for coffee, tea and biscuits! For further information please contact Simon Foster.
