Autism-Friendly Screening of THE MUPPETS at The Gate

Picturehouse Cinemas have partnered with Film Education and learning disability and autism support provider Dimensions to organise a series of Autism-Friendly Screenings of THE MUPPETS for school children across the country.

These screenings are exclusively for children and young people on the autism spectrum or with other special communication needs. The screenings are adapted in a variety of ways to reduce anxiety and ensure a safe, enjoyable cinema experience.

  • - The screening will start with an introduction from a member of staff
  • - Lights are left on low and the volume is reduced to ease any sensory difficulties
  • - It is fine for the audience to move around, make noise or take a break from the screening if needed
  • - A Visual Visit Aid will be available in the week before the screening on request. This resource is a visual aid for children and young adults with Autism Spectrum Conditions to help them prepare for their visit to The Gate and to become familiar with the surroundings and situation.


Thursday 26 April

The doors will open at 9.30am and the film will start at 10.00am.


Call 020 7292 7360 between 10.00am and 5.00.
