Let's Talk Loneliness Let's Talk Loneliness
All of us can experience loneliness at some point in our lives. It’s time we started talking about it.

Matinée Derbyshire

Matinée Derbyshire logo

Matinée provides dementia friendly cinema screenings across Derbyshire for people living with memory challenges, their family and friends. We aim to combat loneliness and social isolation for people living with dementia by creating a sociable and friendly atmosphere where patrons will enjoy the film and activities that we provide.

Matinée film screenings include a great or classic film, often a musical, refreshments (including cake!), and interval events such as singing or fun film related activities.

We ensure our screenings are dementia friendly in a range of ways, including: creating a welcoming and relaxed environment; keeping lights on low during the film; providing clear signage; having a quiet space available for use at all times; and making sure all our staff and volunteers have suitable training.  All our venues are wheelchair accessible, with appropriate facilities.

Details of our screenings can be accessed at www.matineederbyshire.org.uk/events

Please note: Matinée does not provide any personal care or supervision, and the events are not held in secure spaces.
