Dementia Friendly Screenings
Chapter is working to make our programme and the building more accessible for people living with dementia. Our new dementia friendly screenings are a great opportunity for people living with dementia to enjoy a film in a relaxed friendly environment. The screenings themselves are shown without adverts or trailers and have slightly brighter lighting throughout the auditorium. Where possible we will screen the film with soft subtitles and audio description available. Following the films there is a chance to socialise with tea and coffee (included in the ticket price) in one of our hire rooms.
The screenings are open to anyone living with dementia i.e. those diagnosed with and their family, friends, neighbours or carers. We also welcome charity workers, medical professionals, care home staff, social workers and support staff.
Ticket price: £4.50 including a cup of tea or coffee
Tickets for carers are free.

Relaxed Environment Screenings
These screenings are recommended for anyone who might benefit from the subtle alterations made to the auditorium environment. Films are screened with the lights raised slightly, the volume turned down, and with the trailers and adverts removed. People can feel free to move around the cinema or make a noise as they feel comfortable. Chapter staff will be on hand to help if you need additional assistance. Unallocated seating. Regular ticket prices apply.
