Autism Friendly Cinema Screenings

General Details

Dimensions supports people with learning disabilities, autism and complex needs, helping them lead ordinary lives in their local communities. 

Autism Friendly Screenings

Autism friendly screenings are sometimes called relaxed or sensory friendly screenings. Adjustments are made to reduce stress and sensory input, such as low lighting and sound, freedom to move and staff trained in autism awareness.

At least once a month ODEON, Cineworld, Vue, Showcase, Picturehouse and Everyman cinemas show popular films in an autism friendly environment, and independent cinemas can use our free training to host their own.

We hope these screenings will help more people with sensory sensitivity enjoy the cinema and for many, provide a transition into regular screenings.

Anyone who feels they can benefit from the adjustments is welcome and no proof of diagnosis is needed. Your loved ones or support staff are welcome too.

Find an autism friendly screening near you using the map on our website.
