Hi Wendy, here are some movies that in my experience were
very welcomed when shown to residents.
You may borrow them from your local library or buy them online.
Residents may also enjoy music DVDs by Nana Mouskouri, Richard
Clayderman, Roy Orbison, The Seekers, Andre Rieu.

Singing in the Rain
Seven Brides for Seven Brothers
Some Like it Hot
The Sound of Music
The Pajama Game
Honeymoon on Wheels
My Fair lady
Kiss me Kate
Easter parade
The Court Jester
The Wizard of Oz
Dumb and Dumber
It's a Wonderful Life
The Glen Miller Story

Travel movies are great also - you can go to the Travel Agents and borrow some or the Library, also shops like Cheap as Chips/Dick Smith often have good DVD's - call it ARMCHAIR TRAVEL

I find Musical movies with Doris Day or Fred Astaire are favourites. Great old songs to evoke memories
