Dementia-friendly screening of ‘The Pajama Game’

The Plaza Community Cinema holds a regular daytime screening, on the third Thursday of each month at 2pm.

These specialist screenings are aimed at people living with dementia, their families and carers. It is a lovely afternoon out, and a chance for families to enjoy a stress free social event in a beautiful environment.

This month’s screening on Thursday 11 July is The Pajama Game, a musical comedy with an all-star cast: Doris Day, John Raitt, Eddie Foy Jnr and Reta Shaw. Set in a pajama factory, Doris Day leads the workers in their campaign for a pay rise.

The screening takes place in the cinema’s largest screen, restored to its art deco splendour and a worthy contender for the title ‘Picture Palace.’  It is a self-contained space easily accessible for wheelchair users. There are 18 wheelchair spaces available. To the right and left of the screen are male and female toilets. A fully accessible toilet is available in the foyer. Visitors are welcomed and assisted by Dementia Friends trained staff.

The film programme is a combination of classic movies and musicals specially selected to trigger memories.  If people attending the screens have a favourite film they would like to see, the cinema will do its best to include this in our programme.

There will be a short break at the middle of the film to serve tea/coffee and biscuits, these are included in the admission price of £4/free for care staff.

For further information or to reserve wheelchair spaces please contact Christine Physick either by telephone on  0151 928 1530 or via email: christine@plazacinema.org.uk
