Journey to The Dukes cinema this week and you’ll encounter Humphrey Bogart as a gin-swilling riverboat captain along the way.
Classic film, The African Queen (PG), will be screened on April 28 as part of the Journey Café series of arts events which The Dukes presents with Age UK Lancashire.
This wartime romantic adventure stars ‘Bogey’ alongside Katherine Hepburn as a strait-laced missionary who’s a passenger on his riverboat.
The film, which is shown at 2pm, is a public screening so is open to everyone but has been specially programmed for people with dementia and their families.
Some changes will be made to lighting and sound to ensure that a comfortable environment is created.
The screening is part of Journeying Together, a partnership project between Age UK Lancashire and The Dukes supported by Joseph A Jones Solicitors and is part of a national drive towards creating dementia friendly communities.
Before the film begins, free tea/coffee and pastries are available in The Dukes foyer for all ticket holders which provides the chance for a social get-together.
Tickets for the film are £4 including tea/coffee and a pastry. An accompanying carer/family member goes free.
