Exeter Picturehouse

Exeter Picturehouse offers an eclectic mix of arthouse, and quality mainstream films in a comfortable, relaxed and friendly environment. We have a large bar that also sells light snacks, and licensed screens, too. Opened in 1996, this Picturehouse is built on the site of an old bus garage within the walls of the city, ensuring the quirky building matches the range of independent, arthouse and mainstream screenings. Disabled toilets are available and all screens are accessible by wheelchair. Four designated parking spaces are available for disabled badge holders in the cinema car park next to the building. To reach the venue by train please note Exeter St David's Station is a 7-minute walk via New Bridge Street, and Exeter Central Station is 10 minutes away via Bartholomew Street East.

1. Action Plan

1. The National Dementia Declaration lists seven outcomes that the DAA are seeking to achieve for people with dementia and their carers. How would you describe your organisation’s role in delivering better outcomes for people with dementia and their carers?

1. Staff attended a Dementia Friends session in February 2016

2. Since May 2016 we have delivered dementia-friendly screenings once every six weeks that are publicised in the cinema programme. These will include low-lighting and volume plus free entry for care partners plus tea, coffee and biscuits served in the ground-floor lobby during a 15-minute interval. Film choices are based on the choices of people living with dementia and their care partners

3. We promoted Dementia Action Week in May with a selected film choice. 

4. We will consider temporary signage for the Picture House for the duration of the dementia-friendly film programme.

5. We are supporting the Dementia Action Alliance 2019 Calendar. 

2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?

Having enough available staff resources and time can be a challenge.
