Vue autism friendly cinema 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 Vue autism-friendly screening of Sing 2 on Sunday 24th April at 10:30am at participating Vue cinemas.
What makes a Vue cinema screening autism-friendly?
Vue autism friendly cinema screenings are sometimes called relaxed or sensory-friendly screenings. This means some adjustments are in places such as low lighting and sound, freedom to move and staff trained in autism awareness. This helps reduce stress and sensory input in people with autism and other sensory sensitives can experience.
Some Vue autism-friendly adjustments include:
- There are no trailers
- The lights and volume are turned down
- You can sit where you want and move around
- You can take your own food and drink
- Staff are trained in autism understanding
- Carers can get free entry with a valid CEA Card.
