Tickets are on sale for the next Autism Friendly Film screening, animated adventure movie Brave, support provider Dimensions and cinema chain ODEON have said (12th September 2012).

 

Brave, produced by Disney Pixar, will be shown in more than 90 ODEON cinemas across the country at 11.30am on Sunday, September 16.

 

The film, set in the Highlands of Scotland, focuses on an archer named Merida, who defies an age-old custom, causing chaos. After consulting a witch for help, her family becomes cursed and Merida is forced to undo the spell herself before it is too late.

 

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.
