Everyman autism friendly screenings

In response to the government’s advice to prevent the spread of Covid-19 Everyman has decided to close their venues and cancel scheduled autism friendly cinema screenings. We’re sorry for the confusion and uncertainty this situation is causing and thank you for your understanding in what is a very fast changing situation. Please see below for a statement from Everyman.

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:

  • 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 at our partner cinemas.

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.
