Relaxed Screenings (Autism-Friendly)

Relaxed Screenings: Big Screen Experience From The Comfort Of Our Own Home!

Our no-judgement, sensory-friendly, monthly screenings will benefit audiences with additional needs, such as autistic and neurodivergent people, people living with dementia, their carers and loved ones, or anyone who would simply enjoy a more relaxed visit to the cinema. Everyone is welcome, keeping in mind that our focus will be the comfort of our additional-needs customers.

We accept the CEA card and carers/personal assistants go free.
