Memory Matinees

These screenings have been designed to be inclusive to those living with dementia, as well as family members and carers. Our Memory Matinees screenings are rooted in the idea that a trip to the cinema is a powerful way for people to reconnect with memories.

Everyone is welcome to attend these events and tickets are free. Lights will be raised slightly and the sound level will be slightly lower than normal. Our trained staff and volunteers will be on hand throughout the screenings, but please note that pastoral care is not provided, a friend, family member or carer must also attend.  

Please contact the venue in advance if you are a wheelchair user or have difficulty with stairs and wish to attend, as there is limited accessibility at the venue. Toilets are only accessible via a flight of stairs and not so not wheelchair friendly.

Memory Matinees screenings now also take place at HEART in Headingley. For more information about screenings there, as well as access information for the venue, visit their website heartcentre.org.uk.
