Autism-Friendly

Welcome to Picturehouse Cinemas’ Autism-Friendly Screenings!

Film Title: Sing

Picturehouse Cinemas run regular screenings to provide people with autism, sensory sensitivity, learning disabilities and/or additional needs with opportunity to enjoy a trip to the cinema.

Our Autism Friendly screenings are adapted in a variety of ways to help reduce anxiety and over-stimulation and ensure a safe, enjoyable cinema experience for people with autism, and their families, friends and carers.

Adjustments include:

• no trailers or advertisements
• lights left on low throughout the film
• reduced volume
• freedom to move around, make noise and sit where you like
• you are welcome to take a break and leave the screen whenever you need to
• tickets are at the reduced rate of £3 per person
• a relaxed and welcoming environment where staff are sensitive to the needs of children and families with autism

Our upcoming Autism Friendly screenings are…
