See The Light At Dementia-Friendly Film Screenings

The Light Cinema on The Moor in Sheffield is holding special dementia-friendly screenings to ensure that those living with the condition have the opportunity to watch films in adapted environments.

At a dementia-friendly screening there are no adverts or trailers and the lighting is slightly raised throughout the film. There is also an interval roughly half-way through. Although these screenings are particularly designed to be accessible for people with dementia, they are open to the general public too.

Please note that care is not provided at these events. A friend, family member or carer must also attend. Tickets are £5 each with free entry for accompanying carers . More information can be found on the cinema’s website. Upcoming films are Casablanca and Seven Brides for Seven Brothers.

The Light Cinema is the latest Sheffield venue to organise dementia-friendly events, following in the footsteps of Sheffield Theatres, which already has special performances and monthly tea dances.

Disability Sheffield is a forward-thinking, energetic organisation doing a lot of positive work in Sheffield. I have no doubt they will continue to do so for a long time to come.

When I moved to Sheffield nearly five years ago it was my "go to" organisation. I expect it to stay that way. All the staff and volunteers seem to pull out little gems of effort that disabled people like me couldn't do without. Professionally and personally - I love em :)

A fantastic presentation thought provoking and good questions from the floor around promoting this film/message to the general public not just professionals.
