Event description: As part of the Telford Film Festival there will be a dementia friendly screening of the film.

About the film:
The true story of Hollywood’s greatest comedy double act, Laurel and Hardy stars Steve Coogan and John C. Reilly as the legendary movie icons and tells the heart-warming story of what would become the pair’s triumphant farewell tour.

With their golden era long behind them, the pair embark on a variety hall tour of Britain and Ireland. Despite the pressures of a hectic schedule, and with the support of their wives Lucille (Shirley Henderson) and Ida (Nina Arianda) – a formidable double act in their own right – the pair’s love of performing, as well as for each other, endures as they secure their place in the hearts of their adoring public.

This screening is enhanced to suit the needs of people with dementia, enabling them to enjoy film in a fun and comfortable environment.
