Shall we dance? at QUAD, Derby

The King and I imageVisitors seemed to really enjoy the latest dementia friendly film screening of The King and I at QUAD, Derby on 13th February. Unprompted singing could be heard  throughout  Getting to know you,  Whistle a happy tune … Lots of feet were audibly tapping along to ‘Shall we dance ?‘ and when Deborah Kerr and Yul Brynner paused in their duet, the singing carried on in the audience! Lots of smiles and ‘thank you’s at the end, and recollections of when people had seen the film before – along with a definite consensus that Yul Brynner is a very handsome man…    One new visitor with her granddaughter told us the last time she went to the cinema was to see Shirley Valentine in 1989!
