|Title||Dementia Friendly Screening: Carmen Jones|
These Dementia Friendly screenings aim to make cinema more accessible by providing a fun and inclusive experience to enable people living with dementia, their families and carers to attend the cinema in a safe and welcoming environment. The lights are left on low, there are no adverts or trailers and the audience is allowed to move around or even sing along to any musical numbers if they’d like to.
Harry Belafonte and Donorthy Dandridge star in Carmen Jones - an update to Bizet’s opera, set in an all-black army camp during the Korean War. Parachute maker Carmen (Dandridge) is attracted to Joe (Belafonte), a trainee pilot, but their love affair is doomed.
