Dementia friendly screening of On the Town (1949)

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.

ON THE TOWN (1949), starring Gene Kelly and Frank Sinatra

Three sailors (played by Kelly, Sinatra and Jules Munshin) embark on a 24 hour shore leave in New York, and each becomes romantically involved. The music score is by Leonard Bernstein, and many of the dance sequences were filmed on location around the city.
