“The world can be a stressful place for those with autism, but the enjoyment of watching a film at the cinema doesn’t have to be.”

Scott Cinemas partnered with us for autism friendly cinema screenings in 2022 and their sensory friendly films are at selected sites 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.
