What's on in Thurrock

Beautiful Minds film - Victoria and Abdul (rating PG)

Wednesday 7 June 2023, 1pm

This is an extraordinary true story of an unexpected friendship in the later years of Queen Victoria's remarkable rule. Starring Judi Dench, Michael Gambon and Olivia Williams.

The film plays for 1 hour and 52 minutes.

This is a Dementia Friendly social event.

Doors open at 12:45pm, with the film starting at 1pm.

Beautiful Minds Social Club provides dementia-friendly film screenings so people who live with dementia can spend quality time with their loved ones in a supportive environment without the anxiety that a mainstream screening might create.

We want you to feel relaxed and comfortable, to be able to talk to each other or walk around, knowing fellow audience members understand and share the needs you and your loved ones may have. Although seats are allocated when purchased you may sit wherever you feel comfortable.

Our team can help you into the theatre with your walking aid or wheelchair if you would prefer to sit in a seat in the back row. They can then take your chair or frame outside for you until you leave. Mobility scooters cannot be taken into the theatre but may be left in the foyer.

Tea, coffee and cakes are sponsored by Thameside Young Producers and will be served during the interval.
