Dementia Friendly Screening: Brief Encounter

Tickets: £4.50
Venue: Henry Travers Studio
Running Time: 1h26m approx.

Since we started Dementia Friendly Screenings in May 2018, the positive feedback has been overwhelming, with our customers saying “we had the best day out with our service users and can’t wait to come back again! It was such a delight for us all to have a fun, relaxed trip out together”.
 
We’re proud to host our fourth season of specially selected film classics this year. These monthly screenings have been tailored to the needs of those living with dementia, their families, friends and carers but everyone is welcome to join us!

Returning home from a shopping trip to a nearby town, bored suburban housewife Laura Jesson (Celia Johnson) is thrown by happenstance into an acquaintance with virtuous doctor Alec Harvey (Trevor Howard). Their casual friendship soon develops during their weekly visits into something more emotionally fulfilling than either expected, and they must wrestle with the potential havoc their deepening relationship would have on their lives and the lives of those they love.

What to expect from a Dementia Friendly Screening:

Lights are left on lowsound levels are reduced, and it’s fine for customers to move around during the film.

All screenings take place in our Henry Travers Studio, with a combination of raked seating and chairs and tables on a level floor.

We won’t be showing trailers or adverts, so films start promptly at 2pm. Doors will open 20 minutes before, so there’s plenty of time to find a seat.

All screenings are priced at the reduced rate of £4.50 and carers tickets are free if the registered disabled person has applied for a CEA card HERE.
