1970 Family Drama. After Charles Waterbury is imprisoned on false charges of selling state secrets, his wife must move to a small house near a railway station. The Waterbury children, Bobbie, Phyllis and Peter, occupy themselves watching the trains, even befriending a gentleman who frequents the station. When the children discover what has happened to their father, their new friend provides key assistance.
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 a booking charge of 30p). Free tea and biscuits.
