1953 Comedy. A transportation war erupts in a small English village when the government decides to shut down the decrepit railway line. On one side is the bus company, pleased with the prospect of having a monopoly over the town's transportation system. Their opponents are the railway enthusiasts among the villagers, who persuade the richest man in town (Stanley Holloway) to help them operate the line themselves. But runaway trains make this difficult, as does sabotage from the bus company.
Dementia Friendly Cinemas have proven to be very therapeutic for people with memory problems and their families. Besides engaging the brain and stimulating emotions, being part of an audience enjoying a film helps people with dementia and their carers to feel less isolated and also challenges the stigma associated with the condition.
Whilst promoted as a dementia friendly screening, it is open to anyone who loves the old films and wants to come along for an afternoon of fond memories.
Tickets £3.80 (includes an admin fee of 30p). Free tea and biscuits
