Dementia Friendly: Singin’ In The Rain

11:00 AM 19th January 2019 Queen's Film Theatre

The latest demintia friendly screening from QFT is widely considered the greatest ever Hollywood musical, Singin' in the Rain.

Possessing all the magic ingredients of star quality in Gene Kelly and Debbie Reynolds with the most amazing dance sequences, memorable songs, storyline and laugh out loud comedy.

The setting is 1927 Hollywood during the transition from silent movies to talkies with Don Lockwood (Kelly) and Lina Lamont (Jean Hagen) the darlings of the silent silver screen. Off screen, Don, aided by his happy-go-lucky friend and piano accompanist (Donald O'Connor) has to dodge Lina's romantic overtures, especially when he falls for chorus girl Kathy Selden (Reynolds). With the advent of sound in motion pictures, it is decided to turn Don and Lina's new film into a talkie and a musical at that.

This is an inclusive screening experience for people living with dementia, their families and carers. QFT is committed to the Age-friendly Belfast Charter.

Dir:Gene Kelly & Stanley Donen, USA, 1952, 103 mins, U
