Dementia friendly screening of Calamity Jane (1953)

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 11am, with refreshments available from 10.15.

CALAMITY JANE (1953) stars Doris Day in the title role and Howard Keel as Wild Bill Hickok. Calamity Jane is the shotgun rider on the Deadwood stagecoach. When the patrons of the town's saloon complain that they do not have a top class female entertainer, Jane rashly promises to persuade a star attraction from Chicago to sing at the saloon, much to Hickok's amusement.
