This is a dementia-friendly screening 

This is a screening with a difference – each guest will be given a bag of props to playfully immerse themselves in the films and re-engage them with the joy of cinema.

After an improptu fashion shoot at a book store organised by photographer Dick Avery (Fred Astaire), sceptical store clerk Jo Stockton (Audrey Hepburn) gets spotted by Dick and his publisher Maggie (Kay Thompson) to be the new model that they're looking for - with Jo reluctantly agreeing after being tempted by the idea of a modelling trip to Paris. A timeless musical, featuring such classic songs as 'Think Pink' and 'S Wonderful'.

'Teams Fred Astaire and Audrey Hepburn in a delightfully balmy romance' - Bosley Crowther, The New York Times (1957)
