In 1940, with a German invasion looming, the defence of Walmington-on-Sea is in the hands of local bank manager Captain Mainwaring (Arthur Lowe) and a motley collection of volunteers. After a series of blunders, the Home Guard finally get the glory they deserve.
The first film adaptation of the BBC series and written by Jimmy Perry & David Croft.
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.
All Nostalgic Cinema performances have subtitles to assist full enjoyment of the film by any members of the audience who are hard of hearing.
Whilst promoted as a dementia friendly screening, we hope anyone who loves the old films will come along for an afternoon of fond memories.
Tickets £4.50 - includes hot drink, biscuits and chat after the screening.
Ticket price includes £1 admin fee
