Cressingham House News – The Light Cinema

The local picture house is called “The Light Cinema” and a group of our residents sometimes enjoys an outing to see a film there.

Once a month this cinema puts on a care homes/Dementia friendly showing with local companies like Morrison’s, Iceland and nearby restaurants supplying food for the residents attending. They are invited to go at 12.15 pm when they are served with food and drinks. Then they watch the movie and have an interval (as used to be the case) with ice cream being available and a singer who usually performs songs from the movie. They then watch the rest of the film and return home anytime between 4 pm and 5 pm – all of this is available for £5 per resident and carers go free. The residents love it!
