On the Town dementia-friendly film screening

Kirkby in Ashfield Library and Learning Centre

THIS EVENT IS NOW OVER, but look out for other events at Nottinghamshire Libraries.

Watch the award-winning Broadway musical hit, On the Town, at a dementia-friendly screening of the film at Kirkby in Ashfield Library. The 1949 film features Gene Kelly, Frank Sinatra, and Jules Munshin as sailors on a 24-hour shore leave to see the sights, and includes famous tunes such as New York, New York. 

This relaxed screening is particularly suitable for people living with dementia and memory challenges, and their family and friends - but anyone is welcome. Please feel free to talk, sing, and move during the screening.

Doors will open 15 minutes before the film starts and there will be a 20-minute interval. The screening is sensitive to the audience's needs concerning lighting and volume, and there is a quiet space for anyone needing a brief break from the film in the main library. 

This is part of a series of dementia-friendly screenings of films and musicals at libraries across the area. Here is a full list of screenings.
