Autism Friendly Cinema

Sheffield Autistic Society has received the following message from Kyle Campbell of The Light Cinema, Sheffield

“I am a representative for the new Light cinema (Sheffield, The Moor) and we are committed to making Sheffield a more accessible place for everyone to be a part of regardless of disability.

We have put in place a variety of film screenings to make this possible, some of which may interest the people you work with. We have autism-friendly screenings of films which have adjusted lighting and audio to make for a more comfortable and relaxed environment. In these screenings the seating plan is relaxed allowing all attendees to sit wherever they may feel most comfortable. Customers are free to bring food and drink from home should this be preferential. Trailers and advertisements have been removed from these showings meaning a prompt to start to showings.

Whilst the above applies to you I want to make it clear that we are committed to a wider view of making cinema accessible to everybody. Further screenings include baby-friendly for parents of new borns, dementia-friendly and Family AM where we offer ticket at £3 per family member so that nobody misses out.

Please let me know if these screenings interest you or the people you support and I am very happy to provide further information.
