Autism Friendly Screenings of "A Night At The Museum: Secret Of The Tomb" @ Cineworld
Autism Friendly Film Screenings are becoming much more common, with the four main cinema chains all participating at some level. If your local cinema is a Cineworld then the next Autism Friendly Screening will be of the new release "Night At The Museum: Secret Of The Tomb" (PG). The website says it should be on at all the participating Showcase cinemas on the morning of Sunday 4th January at 11am, but you can check individual times on their website along with prices.
Autism friendly screenings have a number of differences to regular cinema screenings that are designed to make the experience more enjoyable for families with children on the autistic spectrum. There will be low lighting kept on during the screening, and volume levels will be reduced. There are also no trailers or advertisements shown, and customers are able to bring in their own food if they wish. Another benefit to these screenings is that there will be no allocated seating and customers are able to move during the screening if they wish. All of this should help make visiting the cinema a better experience for affected families.
Odeon, Vue and Showcase also have autism friendly screenings and details can be found on their individual websites or here on the Autism Friendly Screenings page of the Dimensions website, along with much more information about autism.
