Calamity Jane

Book now

Starring Doris Day and Howard Keel in a story of Deadwood City resident and sharp-shooter Calamity Jane (Day) who finds a rival in love for the man she wants to marry when a pretty young singer comes to town. This version of the film has the words to all the songs on the screen, so we can all join in to ‘Whip Crack Away’, ‘Deadwood Stage’ and the beautiful ‘Secret Love’.

The dementia friendly screenings are programmed in partnership with the ‘A Life More Ordinary’ Project at The Dukes Theatre, Lancaster. This is a screening for people with dementia, memory loss and their family, friends and carers but is open to the general public. Please note that pastoral care is not provided at these events.  A friend, family member or carer must also attend. 

The screenings have a relaxed atmosphere so that people are welcome to move around and come and go as they please. Each screening includes an interval with live entertainment, provided by and in partnership with Welsh National Opera and supported by Canu Conwy, the Conwy County Borough Council staff choir.  *Please contact us in advance if you are a wheelchair user and wish to attend as there is limited availability of wheelchair spaces.
