A cinema guide, produced in collaboration with Alzheimer’s Society and UK Cinema Association, designed to help cinemas improve their accessibility and become more dementia-friendly.
This guide gives best practice advice on how to run dementia-friendly screenings and shares successful case studies from organisations already running them. It aims to spread awareness of dementia-friendly screenings and encourages cinemas of all sizes to get involved. Also available is a dementia friendly survey to assist with gathering data at your screenings.
People affected by dementia often have to give up the things they love due to inaccessible and unsupportive environments. This includes visiting a cinema. Cinemas have an important part to play in tackling the social and economic impact of dementia, by allowing people living with dementia to continue to participate in entertainment.
