About this Event

The David Lean Cinema, in partnership with the Croydon Dementia Action Alliance, are organising a series of popular music films throughout 2019. These Dementia Friendly screenings aim to make cinema more accessible by providing a fun and inclusive experience to enable people living with dementia, their families and carers to attend the cinema in a safe and welcoming environment. The lights are left on low, there are no adverts or trailers and the audience is allowed to move around or even sing along to any musical numbers if they’d like to.

Admission is free for people with dementia and their carers. Tea, coffee and biscuits will be available before the screening. The performance will start at 2.30pm, with refreshments available from 1.45.

A CHRISTMAS CAROL (1951), starring Alastair Sim

Alastair Sim heads a fine cast of British acting talent from the post-war era in this classic rendering of Dickens’s tale of moral redemption, as the miser Scrooge is made to change his ways following visitations from the ghost of his old partner and three seasonal spirits.
