Autism friendly screening adjustments

The autism friendly adjustments are designed to make the cinema more inclusive and accessible for people with sensory sensitivities, and others who can benefit from this environment.

These adjustments are guidelines we share with our partner cinemas. We encourage local cinemas to personalise the screenings to help guests feel more comfortable and support them to maintain high standards.

Staff are trained in autism awareness and are happy to help make your visit more enjoyable

Adjustments include

  • a relaxed environment where people understand the needs of children and families with autism
  • lights left on low
  • sound turned down
  • no trailers or advertisements (unless they are embedded in the film)
  • staff trained in autism awareness
  • disabled access
  • chill out zone, where available
  • freedom to move around and sit where you like
  • bring your own food and drink
  • free entry for carers with valid CEA Card.
