The Apartment - A Life More Ordinary

The 'A Life More Ordinary' screenings take place in a relaxed atmosphere where people are welcome to move around and come and go as they please.

Widely regarded as a comedy in 1960, Jack Lemmon plays C.C.Baxter, a go-getting office worker who loans his tiny apartment to his philandering superiors for their romantic trysts. He runs into trouble when he finds himself sharing a girlfriend (Shirley MacLaine) with his callous boss (Fred MacMurray).

Director Billy Wilder’s customary cynicism is leavened here by tender humor, romance, and genuine pathos.

The Apartment won 6 Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Original Screenplay.

The film starts at 2pm and costs £5 entry (Carers go FREE).

The Ladykillers - A Life More Ordinary

The 'A Life More Ordinary' screenings take place in a relaxed atmosphere where people are welcome to move around and come and go as they please.

Music Professor Marcus (Alec Guinness) rents a London flat from sweet old Mrs Wilberforce (Katie Johnson). He tells her that, from time to time, several other musicians will visit in order to rehearse. In truth, Guinness can't play a note, nor can his visitors: he's a criminal mastermind, holding court over a gang of thieves, including the likes of punkish Harry (Peter Sellers), homicidal Louis (Herbert Lom) and punchdrunk One-Round (Danny Green). The gang uses Professor Marcus' flat as headquarters as they conceive a daring £60,000 robbery.

After pulling off the job, the gang stuffs the loot in a railway station locker. To avoid detection, Marcus convinces the ever-trusting Mrs Wilberforce to pick up the money. Through a series of comic complications she returns home with a police escort, with neither the woman nor the police suspecting that she's carrying a fortune in her suitcase. Mistakenly believing that Mrs Wilberforce has ratted on them, the gang reluctantly plans to eliminate her.

Often referred to as the greatest crime caper film of all time, The Ladykillers won an Oscar nomination for William Rose's screenplay, and a BFA award for veteran character actress Johnson.

The film starts at 2pm and costs £5 entry (Carers go FREE).

Viva Las Vegas - A Life More Ordinary

The 'A Life More Ordinary' screenings take place in a relaxed atmosphere where people are welcome to move around and come and go as they please.

Lucky Jackson (Elvis Presley)arrives in town with his car literally in tow ready for the first Las Vegas Grand Prix - once he has the money to buy an engine. He gets the cash easily enough but mislays it when the pretty swimming pool manageress, Rusty, (Ann Margret) takes his mind off things. It seems he will lose both race and girl, problems made more difficult by rivalry from Count Elmo Mancini (Cesare Danova), fellow racer and womaniser. Perhaps some singing will help!

Margret keeps Elvis on his toes and together they elevate Viva Las Vegas into a naughty and rockin’ mild delight.

The film starts at 2pm and costs £5 entry (Carers go FREE).

LISTENING WITH YOUR EYES WORKSHOP by VAMOS THEATRE

Guiding-hand-LWYE-workshop-Mask-Theatre-GP.jpg

About the workshop
Listening with your Eyes helps develop skills of empathy, insight, listening and trust-building, particularly in the arena of Health and Care.

Suitable for all experiences, Listening with your Eyes explores practically the many ways in which we make connections, with the emphasis on the non-verbal. It looks at the impact of body language, mood, eye-contact, touch, and gesture, and shows how tone of voice can change the meaning of the words we say. The workshop offers an opportunity for participants to see the powerful effect of non-verbal techniques, and their benefit in helping us make real and honest connections – particularly with those living with dementia.

The workshop is led in a supportive and playful way. Our aim is for everyone to learn through their own discovery; to feel for themselves, to see with their own eyes and so to empathise with others more easily.

Who is it for?
Listening with your Eyes has proved invaluable to a wide range of professions for whom connection with the public is central, in particular those working in the Health and Care sector: past participants include care home staff, GPs, nurses, police, family support workers, bereavement counsellors, occupational therapists, CAB advisors, teachers, receptionists and transport drivers.

Benefits and learning outcomes
As England develops Sustainability and Transformation Plans (STPs) across Health and Social Care, person-centred care is a uniting thread amongst the sectors. Listening with your Eyes enables individuals and organisations to develop sustainable habits of person-centred care through experience, education, engagement and entertainment. It offers a range of tools and techniques not ordinarily gained in short workshops that support the implementation of good practice in person-centred care, providing practical and effective training tools to develop caring habits and increase wisdom.

•  Teaches empathy, deep listening, insight, and trust, which feed into the Compassion in Practice 6Cs - care, compassion, courage, communication, commitment and competence.
•  Encourages positive communication without words that is physical, honest, clear and caring.
•  Teaches confidence in reaching and connecting with people living with dementia~
•  Enables the development of sustainable, good practice habits of person-centred care
•  Shares ways of creating a calm and caring atmosphere in the workplace
•  Links with Care of Older Adults Section 3.05 of the RCGP Curriculum Module, and the MRCGP syllabus for trainee GPs.
•  Encourages a caring culture and increasing the person-centred capacity of an organisation

This workshop is £25 and held in Oscars

The 'A Life More Ordinary' screenings take place in a relaxed atmosphere where people are welcome to move around and come and go as they please.

The King and I, Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein's 1951 Broadway musical hit, was based on Margaret Landon's book Anna and the King of Siam.

The culture clash between Anna and the King is but one aspect of their multilayered relationship. 

Featuring the wonderful songs "Getting to Know You", "Whistle a Happy Tune", and "Shall We Dance" this classic film is not to be missed. 

The film starts at 2pm and costs £5 entry (Carers go FREE).
