Memories Of Morecambe

The Dukes is marking World Alzheimer’s Month with one of its special dementia-friendly screenings.

The Lancaster venue is part of a movement designed to recognise World Alzheimer’s Month, led by Film Hub Wales, one of eight UK wide audience hubs which form the BFI Film Audience Network.

The Lancaster venue launched its own dementia-friendly cinema screenings – now part of its pioneering A Life More Ordinary programme – in 2012.

On September 11, it will be screening Morecambe On Film(U) which will show archive footage from the resort’s past.

In partnership with the North West Film Archive, this collection of professional and amateur footage explores life in Morecambe over the past 100 years.

Interval entertainment featuring a selection of seaside-themed songs will be led by Helen Longworth.

A Life More Ordinary daytime film screenings are presented in association with AGE UK Lancashire and everyone is welcome.

These events have a relaxed atmosphere so that people are welcome to move around and come and go as they please.

Tickets are priced £4 and carers go free. Tea coffee and pastries are available in The Dukes café area, free for all ticket holders from 12.30pm, courtesy of Cumberland Building Society.

Pastoral care is not provided at A Life More Ordinary events so a friend, family member or carer must also attend.

Other screenings planned are On The Town on October 16 and Meet Me in St Louis on December 11.
