Cineworld autism friendly screenings

We’re thrilled to announce that after a challenging few years, autism-friendly cinema screenings are back!

There will be some COVID-19 adjustments in place, and these will be dependent on the cinema. But we are working with all our partners to help autism-friendly screenings get back into cinemas.

There is no longer a legal requirement to wear a face covering. The Government suggests that you continue to wear a face-covering in crowded and enclosed spaces where you may come into contact with other people you do not normally meet.

See a Cineworld autism-friendly screening of Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness (12A) on Sunday 5th June at 11am.


“Cineworld was one of the first cinemas to join Dimensions autism-friendly screenings, and we haven’t looked back. It’s very important for us to be able to offer inclusive screenings for people with autism and help them enjoy the world of film.”

Cineworld has been hosting autism friendly cinema screenings since 2012 and now their sensory-friendly films are at over 100 cinemas at least once a month.


What makes a Cineworld cinema screening autism-friendly?

Sometimes you might also see an autism-friendly screening being described as a relaxed screening or a sensory-friendly screening. This means there are some adjustments in place to help reduce the stress and sensory input people with autism and other sensory sensitivities can experience.

Cineworld’s autism-friendly adjustments include:

Dimensions provide free online training for every cinema in the UK, and additional support for other partner cinemas; ODEON, Vue, Showcase, Picturehouse and Everyman.
