Autism Friendly Screenings are mainstream films shown in a sensory friendly environment. Lights are on low, sound is turned down, trailers are omitted and people can bring their own food, make noise and move around the cinema as they feel comfortable.

The screenings are for anyone who would benefit from the subtle differences made to the cinema environment. To view a full list of participating cinemas please visit www.dimensions-uk.org/autismfriendly.

Tickets can be bought in advance through the ODEON accessibility helpline number 0800 138 3315.
