Nostalgic Cinema: The African Queen (1951) (PG)

Nostalgic Cinema: The African Queen (1951)

Directed by John Huston

Starring Humphrey Bogart, Katharine Hepburn, Robert Morley

Duration 115 mins.

Nostalgic Cinema events are kindly sponsored by Home Instead Exeter & East Devon – providers of officially outstanding home care across our community.

After religious spinster's (Katharine Hepburn) missionary brother is killed in WWI Africa, dissolute steamer captain (Humphrey Bogart) offers her safe passage. She's not satisfied so she persuades him to destroy a German gunboat. The two spend most of their time fighting with each other rather than the Germans. Time alone on the river leads to love.

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 £5 - includes hot drink, biscuits and chat after the screening.

Ticket price includes £1 admin fee

Seats are not allocated for these showings.
