Free dementia-friendly film screenings in Bexhill

BDAA logoA new season of dementia-friendly musical matinees is about to open at Bexhill’s De La Warr Pavilion. The films are being screened free for people with dementia or disabilities through a partnership between the Bexhill Dementia Action Alliance, Rother District Council and the De La Warr Pavilion. 

The organisers describe the ethos of the screenings as ‘relaxed’, which means they are geared towards people who may benefit from a less formal environment, such as those living with dementia or disabilities. Auditorium lights will be partially up throughout the screenings, audience members can move around or leave the auditorium whenever they like and staff will maintain a relaxed attitude to noise.    

Although it’s free to attend the film screenings, places are limited so advance booking is recommended. The film-screening dates are:

  • Tuesday 15 September, 2pm – Wizard of Oz Singalong (1939)
  • Tuesday 13 October, 2pm – Calamity Jane (1953)
  • Tuesday 3 November, 2pm – Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953)
  • Tuesday 8 December, 2pm – Carousel (1956)
  • Tuesday 12 January, 2pm – There’s No Business Like Show Business (1954)
