We are delighted to present cinema screenings designed for people with Dementia, learning or physical difficulties and their families and carers. Screenings are open to everyone. Our trained staff will be on hand with a warm welcome. We screen the films with the lights up a little and the sound down a touch in our beautiful auditorium. Sing along if you wish, or get up and dance, there are no rules!
At an inn which is only open on holidays, a crooner and a hoofer vie for the affections of a beautiful up-and-coming performer.
Holiday Inn is a 1942 American musical film directed by Mark Sandrich and starring Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire, with Virginia Dale, Marjorie Reynolds, and Walter Abel. With music by Irving Berlin, the composer wrote twelve songs specifically for the film, the best known being “White Christmas”. The film features a complete reuse of the song “Easter Parade”, written by Berlin for the 1933 Broadway revue As Thousands Cheer. The film’s choreography was by Danny Dare. The film received a 1943 Academy Award for Best Original Song (Irving Berlin for “White Christmas”), as well as Academy Award nominations for Best Score (Robert Emmett Dolan) and Best Original Story (Irving Berlin).
