Autism-Friendly Screenings at The Picturehouse, Cambridge

Autism-Friendly Screenings for people on the autism spectrum and their families, friends and carers


Film Reel

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 leah.b@picturehouses.co.uk or elinor.w@picturehouses.co.uk with 'Autism- Friendly Mailing List' and the name of your nearest Picturehouse cinema (Cambridge Picture House) in the subject line.

Autism-Friendly Screenings use advice and information from the National Autistic Society.
