Autism Friendly Cinema Screenings

PLEASE BE AWARE OF THESE NEW CHANGES  These screenings replace our previous arrangement with Cineworld, Newport.

As of December 2012, Cineworld is proud to announce its new offering of Autism Friendly screenings in partnership with leading social care provider, Dimensions.

Not-for-profit organisation Dimensions, which support people who experience autism and learning disabilities, is working with Cineworld to extend its Autism Friendly Film initiative, which will now include 21 Cineworld Cinemas across the UK. Cineworld will host an Autism Friendly screening once a month to offer a wider choice for cinema goers.

Volume levels will be reduced.
There will be no advertisements or trailers.
Seating will not be allocated.
Customers will be allowed to bring in their own food.
Screenings will be at 11am on the first Sunday of every month.
