Film classic “Some Like It Hot” will be screened at The Dukes, Lancaster, later this month.

It is part of the Journey Café arts events series, which has seen Age UK Lancashire join forces with The Dukes to offer older people and their families increased access to the arts.

The film, which stars Marilyn Monroe, Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis, will be screened on Monday, October 27, at 2pm.

The screening is open to everyone, though it has been specially programmed for people with dementia and their families.

Some changes will be made to lighting and sound to ensure a comfortable environment is created.

Before the film begins, free tea/coffee and pastries are available in The Dukes foyer for all ticket holders which provides the chance for a social get-together.

Tickets for the screening are £4, which includes tea/coffee and a pastry. An accompanying carer/family member will be admitted free.
