Memory Lane Movies Come to the Quay

Posted by on 8 May 2017 | Comments

The Quay Theatre in Quay Lane, Sudbury will host a screening of High Society on Monday 22 May, by Memory Lane Films, following the success of similar screenings earlier in the year.

The film, starring Bing Crosby, Grace Kelly and Frank Sinatra, was first released in 1956 and will be shown by Memory Lane Films in a friendly, relaxed setting, open to all and particularly accessible to those living with memory loss, dementia, their carers and families.

The screening follows the sell-out success of similar films shown at The Quay in a dementia friendly setting, including a showing of An American in Paris earlier this year.

The showing commences at 11am on Monday 22 May; tickets are free but must be reserved by calling The Quay Box Office on: 01787 374 745

There is wheelchair space available; please let the box office know when booking if any of your party have restricted mobility.

The screening is being arranged by Suffolk Cinema Network, supported by Babergh District Council.

Those requiring assistance to travel to the venue can contact GoStart on: 01787 242 116. All GoStart vehicles are wheelchair accessible and transport is completely free, kindly funded by Suffolk Community Foundation.

Sue Clements, Babergh and Mid Suffolk District Councils’ Corporate Manager – Strong and Safe Communities, said: “The public response to these screenings has been fantastic, and I’m delighted that we’ve been able to work with the Suffolk Cinema Network to put on further showings. Thanks to The Quay and GoStart we are giving people living with dementia an opportunity to experience something so many of us take for granted and I hope there will be many more such opportunities to come.”

Laurie Jarmain, Suffolk Cinema Network: "It’s incredibly important that those living with dementia, their carers and families are able to enjoy a cinematic event and a social outing. We’re thrilled that the screenings have been so popular and we hope this inspires more dementia-friendly activity in our communities.”
