Mamma Mia 2 has elderly dancing in cinema aisles 

A CINEMA turned into a dance hall for elderly care home residents during a dementia friendly screening of hit musical Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again.

Residents from Waverley Lodge Care Home, in Lemington, leapt out of their seats during one of the film’s climactic hits to strut their stuff in the aisles.

The screening specifically for those with dementia was the first of its kind at the Metrocentre, in Gateshead.

Michelle Park, activities coordinator at Waverley Lodge Care Home, said: “Our residents were dancing in the aisles to Dancing Queen – they absolutely loved it. 

“They sang Abba songs on the bus all the way home, entertaining the other passengers, and then continued to sing for their fellow residents while having their supper – so I’d say it was a massive success.

“Everything at the cinema was so well organised so everyone felt relaxed and able to express themselves.  It was a delight to see so many happy faces.”

The special screening included a 15-minute break, no adverts and reduced sound levels. 

Resident Pat Vasey, said: “What a fantastic trip out, I really enjoyed Mamma Mia 2.”
