Autism-Friendly Screenings are film screenings especially for people on the autism spectrum and their families, friends and carers. Some people with autism are sensitive to sound and light and they can find going to the cinema difficult.

During Autism-Friendly Screenings low lights are left on in the auditorium and the volume of the soundtrack is reduced. It is fine for customers to move around, make noise or take a break during the film.

Tickets cost £3 for everyone (there are no concessions or free tickets for support workers). To find out more or to be added to the mailing list, email [email protected] with 'Autism- Friendly Mailing List' and the name of your nearest Picturehouse cinema in the subject line.

Autism-Friendly Screenings use advice and information from the National Autistic Society. The National Autistic Society is the UK’s leading charity for people affected by autism. If you need information, advice and support, call The National Autistic Society’s Autism Helpline on 0808 800 4104 (Monday - Friday, 10.00am – 4.00).

Picturehouse also run regular Autism-Friendly screenings for schools. To find out whether we are doing this in your area, please email Lucy Orr at [email protected] with the name of your school, your local Picturehouse, and ‘SEN Schools Screenings’ in the subject line.
