Vue Cinemas are hosting autism friendly screenings at 10am on the last Sunday of every month at 78 cinemas nationwide, including Fulham Broadway and Shepherd's Bush, in the West 12 Centre.

Autism friendly films are special screenings of children's films, where subtle changes to the traditional cinema environment have been made, namely –

  • Lights are left on low
  • The sound is turned down
  • Trailers and adverts are not played
  • It's ok for people to move around during the screening and make a bit of noise.

The next Autism Friendly film at Vue Cinemas will be Disney's Planes, showing on Sunday October 27 at 10am, with tickets priced just £1.75.

Social stories can be downloaded for all Vue Autism friendly films. These can be used to describe what to expect at the screenings, and you can view the latest social story here.
