On The Town – Dementia Friendly Screening
Fun-loving sailors Gabey (Gene Kelly), Chip (Frank Sinatra) and Ozzie (Jules Munshin) have 24 hours of shore leave in New York City, and they want to make every second count. While Chip hooks up with loudmouth cab driver Brunhilde (Betty Garrett) and Ozzie swoons for prim anthropologist Claire (Ann Miller), Gabey falls in love with an actress he sees in an advertisement, Ivy Smith (Vera-Ellen). Leonard Bernstein, with lyricists Betty Comden and Adolph Green, provides the music.
This is a dementia friendly screening, designed to be inclusive to all needs, providing a relaxed atmosphere for families and carers to enjoy sharing the magic of the movies with their loved ones.
We welcome those who might be challenged in a traditional cinema environment, who may vocalise, walk around during the session or require support. They’re also ideal for groups so do get in contact if you work for a community organisation that provides activities for those in dementia and aged care.
