The Light autism friendly screenings

The Light are showing a variety of films across their sites. Please scroll down to see what’s showing at a cinema near you.

“The Light strives to be fully inclusive and host autism-friendly screenings for guests who are neuro-diverse.

“Our staff are friendly, welcoming and helpful – and we work hard to minimise barriers to attendance for guests. We screen regular autism friendly screenings at all our sites, where we make adjustments for guests.”

The Light partnered with us for autism friendly cinema screenings in 2021 and now their sensory friendly films are at all their 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:

  • 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, Everyman and The Light cinemas.
