Big Screen Dreams

Ayrshire Post - - Prestwick -

There’s a dif­fer­ent way to watch cin­ema block­busters in Prest­wick th­ese days.

And it’s all thanks to a go- ahead group of vol­un­teers bid­ding to break down the bar­ri­ers for at­ten­dance at the movies.

Prest­wick’s De­meni­tia Friendly Group are renowned for their in­no­va­tive ideas when it comes to those liv­ing with the con­di­tion.

And their new re­laxed cin­ema con­cept is just the lat­est in a long line of projects.

They held a Christ­mas spe­cial screen­ing of Elf at the town’s Com­mu­nity Cen­tre to mark the fes­tive sea­son.

There was even a visit from the man him­self as Santa stopped by to check up on prepa­ra­tions for the big day.

Julie Twad­dell, of the group’s steer­ing com­mit­tee, said: “Our De­men­tia Friendly cin­ema has been a huge suc­cess.

“It’s all about in­clu­sion and mak­ing peo­ple feel re­laxed in their sur­round­ings.”
