Dementia Friendly Screening
Forum Cinema Hexham | Friday 22nd March | 13:00
Sponsored by Chyrsalis Club Tynedale
Deadwood, South Dakota, is largely the abode of men, but sharp-shooter scout Calamity Jane is as hard-riding, boastful and handy with a gun as any. Jane’s wild promises set her off in search of a beautiful singer to grace the stage at the Golden Garter saloon.
This is a Dementia Friendly screening. Our Dementia Friendly Screenings are designed for people living with Dementia and their carers, or for anyone who would benefit from a relaxed cinema environment, but all are welcome.
Providing a comfortable and welcome environment, we turn the sound down a notch, keep the lights on low and encourage people to come and go as they want with unallocated seating.
£9 - £3

About Chrysalis Club Tynedale
Chrysalis at Tynedale was born in 2009 when an art class for people living with dementia proved to be a popular, more flexible option than day care. We were started by three people with extensive management experience in specialist dementia care.
Since we formed, we have gone from strength to strength, by building up our membership of people with dementia and their families. We provide an increasing range of tutored activities (often suggested by members) each week and group support for families.
