The Autism Friendly Screening partnership between Dimensions and cinema chains nationwide aims to raise awareness of the sensory differences experienced by people and promote the cinema-going experience for people with autism and people with learning disabilities.
A national campaign launched by Dimensions to improve cinema access for people with learning disabilities and people with autism has been so successful that autism friendly film screenings take place at cinemas across the country each month.
Dimensions is a leading specialist provider of support for people with autism and people with learning disabilities and their partnership with cinema groups ODEON, Vue, Cineworld and Showcase will mean that thousands of people will now have better access and improved choice to watch films in an environment more conducive with their needs.
Lights are left on low, the volume is turned down, trailers are omitted and people can move around the cinema or make a noise as they feel comfortable. The films are recommended to anyone that would benefit from the subtle alterations made to the cinema auditorium because of their sensory differences and it allows them to attend newly released films with friends and family in an inclusive environment.
