BUY TICKETS 3pm Sunday 2 December *Dementia-friendly screening*
DIRECTOR Michael Curtiz
CAST Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Rosemary Clooney, Vera-Ellen
A sweet and romantic Christmas classic starring Bing Crosby, which takes place in a Vermont lodge where it is almost always a “White Christmas”.
Celebrate the start of the festive season with this glorious Christmas musical. A pair of former soldiers visit their old commanding officer’s struggling winter resort in Vermont to stage a new show. This is a relaxed screening, open to all but particularly welcoming to people living with dementia together with their family, friends and carers.
(1954 USA 115 mins + interval)
The story, as if you need reminding, is about a song-and-dance team who travel up to Vermont to help their former army commander save his inn from foreclosure. Kaye is superb, especially in his knockout dance routine with Vera-Ellen, and the direction from veteran Michael Curtiz rightly embraces the sentiment rather than keeping it at bay.

This is a relaxed screening, open to everyone, but particularly welcoming to people living with dementia together with their family, friends and carers. Tickets £5, carers free.
