Dementia Action with ‘Still Alice’ (12a) and special guests – Friday 26th May @ 7pm

Julianne Moore’s emotional portrayal of a professor facing up to early-onset Alzheimer’s disease won her an Oscar and a BAFTA. We are proud to be showing this incredible film as part of a special event where we will get an insight into local projects and inspiring people living with dementia.

Special Guests

As well as the award winning feature film we will be welcoming speakers from:

  • Inspired Youth – A York based film production company introducing some of their short films.
  • Minds in motion – A student volunteer group working with people living with dementia.
  • City of York Council – To offer advice and insight into relevant work going on in this field.

Our group aims to be more than just a cinema. We want to find award winning films that shed light on subjects that affect our society. We want to bring you exciting and thought provoking events on these subjects and we want to offer somewhere safe, inclusive and supportive to enjoy such events with like minded people.

Most of all we want everyone to feel welcome through our doors. As another step toward that aim we are proud to be pledging our support to York’s Dementia Action Alliance and working towards becoming dementia friendly. We hope you can support us by sharing this event with your friends

We expect this event to be well attended and so please book tickets early to avoid disappointment. They can be purchased from New Earswick Folk Hall or online our tickets section.

We look forward to seeing you!
