Event description

Description

Mansfield Central Library are delighted to be hosting a series of dementia friendly screenings of classic films and musicals.

Houseboat - Widower Tom Winters (Cary Grant), his three young children, and a nanny get to know each other better when circumstances have them living together aboard a badly neglected houseboat. Trying to understand and raise three precocious children alone, Tom gets a little unexpected help from Cinzia (Sophia Loren), when the children decide she is to be the new maid. She is actually an Italian socialite who is trying to get away from her overprotective father.

The screenings are particularly suitable for people living with dementia and memory challenges, their family and friends but anyone is welcome. Please feel free to talk, sing and move during the screening.

Doors will open 20 minutes before the screening and there will be a 20 minute interval. We will be sensitive to the audience when it comes to lighting and volume in the auditorium. A quiet room for anyone needing a brief break from the film will be available just outside the auditorium and toilets including an accessible toilet are also just outside the auditorium door.

The auditorium is on the second floor of the building with good lift access but the seating is stepped as shown in the picture and there are 3 wheelchair user tickets available.

If you have any additional requirements or questions before booking please contact arts@inspireculture.org.uk

Tickets available through the Eventbrite link or at the Library.
