Elvis Presley smouldering behind bars, in an ever-popular musical that includes a kickass dance number to the title track which is widely recognised as the King’s finest moment on film. Sit back and enjoy the time-honoured story of boy goes wrong, boy gets a second chance and blows it, but boy comes good in the end. Oh, and there’s the bonus of some toe tapping music too!

This is a relaxed/dementia-friendly screening.

This screening is open to all but it is specially adapted for people living with dementia and their families, friends and carers. This means that we will have:

  • Friendly ushers to meet, greet and seat you
  • The Opera House will be adapted to be as calming and comfortable as possible:
    • There will be low level lighting throughout the screening
    • The volume is slightly lower
  • Wheelchair spaces are available
  • There will be a 20 minute interval halfway through the film
  • You are free to talk and move around during the screening
  • Singing along is not only allowed but positively encouraged!
  • Doors open at 2:40pm so that you can get to know the cinema space before the film

Tickets: £4.00
Accompanying carers go free.
