“We understand our cinemas are large, busy and exciting environments and for some this creates barriers or results in sensory overload. We’ve developed a regular program of screenings designed to create a relaxed and safe environment.”

ODEON have been hosting autism friendly cinema screenings since 2011 and now their sensory friendly films are at over 100 cinemas at least once a month.

What makes a 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.

Some autism friendly adjustments include:

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