Matinée provides dementia friendly cinema screenings across Derbyshire for people living with memory challenges, their family and friends.
We aim to create a sociable and friendly atmosphere and we hope that all our patrons will enjoy the film and activities that we provide.
Matinée film screenings include a great or classic film, often a musical, refreshments (including cake!), and interval events such as singing or fun film related activities.
We ensure our screenings are dementia friendly in a range of ways, including: creating a welcoming and relaxed environment; keeping lights on low during the film; providing clear signage; having a quiet space available for use at all times; and making sure all our staff and volunteers have suitable training. All our venues are wheelchair accessible, with appropriate facilities.
Please note: Matinée does not provide any personal care or supervision, and the events are not held in secure spaces.
Only 70 days to go til Christmas – so come and join us for some festive dementia friendly films across Derbyshire and Derby City…
