Movie Memories is a monthly programme funded by Life Changes Trust and ran by the Glasgow Film Theatre (GFT). This programme presents classic and contemporary film screenings alongside a programme of multi-arts entertainment.
This programme is designed especially for people affected by dementia. This encompasses people living with a type of dementia and their carers, friends and family.
With dementia aware staff and volunteers (Movie Memories Ambassadors) a safe and social environment is created where everyone is welcome.
Why is this programme important?
A new case of dementia is diagnosed somewhere in the world every four seconds. This is something we can’t ignore, particularly as 34% of the 850,000 people currently living with dementia in the UK don’t feel part of their community, 61% felt anxious or depressed recently and 40% felt lonely. (Data from Alzheimer’s Society).
