Relaxed and Dementia Friendly Screening At Ropetackle Arts Centre, Shoreham-by-sea

December 21, 2026 @ 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Film screenings tailored for those with dementia and memory loss.

Our relaxed and friendly films place cinema at the heart of a growing dementia friendly community, providing an accessible, fun, and inclusive experience.

Relaxed and friendly films enable people living with dementia, as well as their families and carers, to attend the cinema in a safe and welcoming environment.

The films are open to everyone, but are specially designed to be warm and welcoming for people living with dementia, memory loss, or with sensory issues.

WHAT DOES RELAXED MEAN?

How do we create a relaxed and friendly environment?

  • Lights remain on at a low level
  • Volume is reduced and gentle
  • Capacity is limited to allow for plenty of room
  • Attendees are welcome to sing, dance, or talk during the film
  • There is an interval with refreshments served and an opportunity to socialise
  • Toilet facilities are close and clearly signposted
  • Cinema access is flat with no stairs or obstacles
  • Friendly staff and volunteers on hand to help make comfortable experience
  • Films are subtitled
