Special Screens: The Wizard of Oz

Thu 21 Jun
11:00am to 12:45pm
£2

These screenings are suitable for those living with special needs, such as Dementia, physical and mental challenges, their families and carers. Films will screen with low-level lighting, no adverts or trailers and the audience are free to move around, or sing along to any musical number if they so wish. Complimentary tea, coffee and biscuits will be served half an hour before the film to give people the chance to meet and socialise, and to familiarise themselves with the venue.

Probably the best-loved musical in movie history, with a teenage Judy Garland as Dorothy. A magical fantasy that affirms the value of home and family, and possesses an innocent charm. The classic song ‘Somewhere Over The Rainbow’ is timeless.

Won 2 Oscars.
