Come along for dementia friendly screenings of the Pink Panther on the 15th February, and A Kind of Seeing: Glasgow Life on the 29th March

Glasgow Film Theatre’s Movie Memories has announced that it will be presenting another two dementia friendly movie events on the 15th February and 29th March.

Movie Memories is a monthly programme funded by the Life Changes Trust presenting film screenings alongside a programme of multi-arts entertainment in a dementia friendly environment, with dementia aware staff and volunteers (Movie Memories Ambassadors) in attendance.

Dementia Carer Voices work on the steering group of this programme. And we know how important events like Movie Memories are for ensuring people living with dementia are empowered to stay connected to their communities, by providing a safe and inclusive environment which allows people to carry on taking part in the activities they enjoy.

The showing in February will be the Pink Panther, while A Kind of Seeing: Glasgow Life will be shown in March. Whilst the former is a 1960s classic, the latter will be a more interactive experience. People will be invited to come and see archive films of the city from across the 20th century. Guest curator Shona Thomson is due to return with a selection from the National Library of Scotland and she will be taking requests! Those who attend will be encouraged to share their favourite moments of Glasgow life by emailing akindofseeing@gmail.com

You can expect:

  • A welcoming and safe environment;
  • A social space, where conversation is encouraged;
  • Dementia aware staff and volunteers in attendance;
  • And free refreshments and an interval.

Tickets for each event are £3 and you can visit here (this link will take you away from our website) or call 0141 332 6535 for more info.
