Autism friendly cinema screenings

We work with ODEON, Cineworld, Vue and Showcase to host autism friendly screenings at over 300 cinemas nationwide.

On Sunday mornings throughout the month, films suitable for all audiences are screened in a sensory friendly and inclusive environment.

These adjustments aim to reduce over-stimulation and create a welcoming environment.
