Seven Brides for Seven Brothers – Dementia Friendly Screening

Cineworld Middlesbrough will be holding a Dementia-Friendly screening on October 16th at 11am. Doors open at 10.30am.
Dementia Friendly screenings enable people living with dementia and their carers to attend the cinema in a safe and comfortable environment, giving them the chance to get out and socialise. Screenings are open to everyone, but are enhanced to suit the needs of people living with dementia: ​During the film low lights are left on inside the auditorium, the volume of the soundtrack is reduced and it’s fine for members of the audience to express themselves.
The staff on duty for these screenings have become Dementia Friends to help provide support before, during and after the screenings, as well as making our venue generally more Dementia Friendly.

BOOKING: In-person at Box Office or at
Wheelchair spaces are limited so please book in advance.
Flexible refund policy in place for these shows.
