Autism-friendly Film Screenings
Did you know that Cinema City in Norwich hold regular Autism Friendly screenings of family films.
Autism-Friendly Screenings are film screenings especially for people on the autism spectrum and their families, friends and carers. 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.
For more info, please visit the website.
