The Trent Bridge Parkinson’s Café will celebrate their “1st” birthday in style this April with a special screening of the film “Kinetics” to be held at The Broadway Cinema, Nottingham on Monday 9th April 2018 at 12:30pm.
This exciting event includes the opportunity for audience members to ask Sue Wylie, the writer and co-star of the film, about the film immediately after the screening during a “Questions & Answers” to be hosted by the BBC Radio Nottingham presenter John Holmes MBE.
Kinetics is based on a true story. The story of Sue Wylie, diagnosed with Parkinson’s shortly after her 50th birthday. Sue was teaching part-time when she met a student who was getting in trouble for free running (Parkour) on the school roof. An exceptionally bright student who was in danger of being kicked out of school before he completed his GCSEs. Through an unlikely coming together of his world of extreme movement and Sue’s ever-decreasing one the film follows the journey Sue has experienced from starting to realise something is “wrong” with her hand movement through the initial diagnosis and coming to terms with living with Parkinson’s.
Tickets are still available. Steve Moss, a coordinator of Trent Bridge Parkinson’s Café told us “We are really excited about the screening. We wanted to put on something a bit different to celebrate a very successful first twelve months. We hope that showing this film will help us raise awareness about Parkinson’s. I’ve seen a preview and it has an incredibly well written and moving storyline, which got me crying one minute and roaring with laughter the next. Recent figures from Parkinson’s UK would suggest that there are at least 2,000 people in and around the Greater Nottingham area who have the condition, so we think it is very important that as many people as possible understand a little more about living with the condition.”
Tickets are being offered on a complimentary basis. There will be a collection on the day to raise money to cover the costs with any surplus going towards helping support people living locally with Parkinson’s. Please Note: There are no tickets for sale or available through the box-office / ticket office at The Broadway Cinema as it is a private event.
