Abbeygate Cinema in Bury St Edmunds was full of dancing and singing last week as Love Me Tender was the latest film to be shown as part of its dementia-friendly programme.
The event, organised by Gatehouse in partnership with the cinema, was held on Monday, March 5 and saw a large group, including Mayor Terry Clements, turn out to watch Elvis Presley in action.
Elaine Channen, of Gatehouse, said: “The dementia-friendly screenings are getting bigger and better. People were dancing and a fabulous time was had by all. That’s how a cinema trip should go. Everyone is already asking for the next one.”
Dementia-friendly screenings use dull lighting, reduced sound and an easy-to-follow storyline to create a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere.
