News: Autism Friendly Screenings

Artsline, 4 December 2009, 00:53





     Autism-Friendly Screenings

Picturehouse cinemas are working in partnership with The National Autistic Society to hold special film screenings for people on the autism spectrum and their families, friends and carers.

During the film low lights are left on inside the auditorium and the volume of the soundtrack is reduced. It is fine for customers to move around, make a noise or take a break during the film if they need to.

The National Autistic Society is the
UK's leading charity for people affected by autism. If you need information, advice and support, call The National Autistic Society's Autism Helpline on 0845 070 4004 (Mon-Fri, 10-4).

in association with Newham People First

Stratford Picturehouse has joined forces with People First Newham - a support group run by and for learning disabled adults - to make cinema going more enjoyable for adults with learning disabilities and other special needs.

On the first Tuesday of every month Stratford Picturehouse will screen 2 films from the main programme with an interval at half time for those of you that find sitting down for a full 2 hours a struggle.

Become a member of the cinema club and receive a membership card entitling you to reduced ticket prices and all cinema club screenings and unlimited free tea/coffee and biscuits!

The cinema doors open at 12noon and the films start at 1pm. Tea/coffee and biscuits are available from the upstairs bar area, before, during and after the screenings so you can chat about the movie with other cinema club members.
