Family animation movie The Lorax will be the next Autism Friendly Film screening, support provider Dimensions and cinema chain ODEON have revealed.

The Lorax, which is based on the Dr Seuss book, will be shown in more than 80 ODEON cinemas across the country at 11.30am on Sunday, August 12. Tickets are available from 11am on Wednesday, August 8.

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 and drink, 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.
