Dimensions – Autism Friendly Cinema Screenings

Dimensions work with ODEON, Cineworld, Vue and Showcase cinemas to host autism friendly screenings on Sundays.

Adjustments are made to make the cinema experience more enjoyable for people with autism or sensory sensitivity.

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 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

To find out more you can visit the Dimensions website or the Dimensions Facebook page.
