Are any Caring Together members interested in attending this performance? If so let us know in advance if possible so that we are aware of numbers. A member of staff will be on hand during the film. Note: The toilets in the Hyde Park are not very accessible, are limited in size and require either climbing or descending stairs.
The 2nd in a season of matinees at the Picture House which have been designed to be inclusive to those living with dementia as well as family members and carers. It is rooted in the idea that a trip to the cinema is a powerful way for people to reconnect with memories.
Jailhouse Rock is an action packed musical drama, starring Elvis Presley as Vince Everett, who learns to play the guitar in prison and participates in a national TV show. The dance sequence in this film is considered by many to be Elvis Presley’s greatest moment on screen!
