Dementia Friendly Screening: The King and I
@ The Maltings, BerwickBook Now
18 March 2020
We’re proud to host our fourth season of specially selected film classics this year. These monthly screenings have been tailored to the needs of those living with dementia, their families, friends and carers but everyone is welcome to join us!
Mrs. Anna Leonowens and her son Louis arrive in Bangkok, where she has been contracted to teach English to the children of the royal household. She threatens to leave when the house she had been promised is not available, but falls in love with the children. A new slave, a gift of a vassal king, translates “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” into a Siamese ballet. After expressing her unhappiness at being with the King, the slave decides to make an attempt to escape with her lover. Anna and the King start to fall in love, but her headstrong upbringing inhibits her from joining his harem. She is just about to leave Siam but something important she finds out makes her think about changing her mind.
Upcoming Dementia Friendly Screenings
Oklahoma! – 22 April 2020
What to expect from a Dementia Friendly Screening:
Lights are left on low, sound levels are reduced, and it’s fine for customers to move around during the film.
All screenings take place in our Henry Travers Studio, with a combination of raked seating and chairs and tables on a level floor.
We won’t be showing trailers or adverts, so films start promptly at 2pm. Doors will open 20 minutes before, so there’s plenty of time to find a seat.
All screenings are priced at the reduced rate of £4.50 and carers tickets are free if the registered disabled person has applied for a CEA card HERE.
