Regal Picturehouse in Henley-on-Thames is a Dementia Friendly Cinema. Once a month they have Dementia-Friendly Screening. The cinema is open to all but especially for people with dementia and their family, friends and carers. There is a chance to socialise for 30 minutes before the film and enjoy free tea, coffee and biscuits.
During the film, lights are left on low. Viewers are welcome to talk, move around and sing along as they wish. There is also a 20 minute interval halfway through the film. As you will see from the list below, the films selected are films which many people with dementia may well be familiar with from years gone by.
Tickets are £4 and free for carers.

Max Bialystock (Zero Mostel) is a washed up Broadway producer forced to romance old ladies to finance his plays. When timid accountant Leo Bloom (Gene Wilder) is brought in to do his books, he inadvertently reveals to Bialystock that under the right circumstances, a producer could make more money with a flop than a hit. Bialystock cajoles Bloom into helping him achieve this end and together they come up with what they consider to be a sure-fire disaster waiting to happen – a musical version of Adolf and Eva’s love story entitled ‘Springtime For Hitler’. But is it possible that they might actually have the most unlikely hit of all time on their hands?
