People living with dementia shouldn’t have to give up the things they love, due to inaccessible or unsupportive environments – including visiting a cinema.
Depot wants to make a difference to people living with dementia in and around Lewes with its Dementia-friendly screenings.
Experienced practitioner Suzy Harvey brings the action on screen to life in the auditorium, provoking memories and encouraging fun. Each guest will be given a bag of props to immerse themselves in the films and re-engage them with the joy of cinema.
How are dementia-friendly screenings different?
The auditorium lights are on a half setting throughout the film and the sound is slightly quieter. There is a relaxed attitude to noise and audience members are free to move around and come and go. There is a quiet area outside the screen for anyone who needs a break. Dementia trained Depot staff and volunteers are on hand.
