CINEWORLD will be showing their first Autism friendly screening in partnership with Dimensions in December.
The screenings will be happening at Cineworld cinemas all over the country including the Chester branch at the Greyhound Retail Park at 11am on the first Sunday of every month. People with sensory differences and autism can attend with friends and siblings in an inclusive environment.
Autism Friendly screenings differ from regular screenings, the lighting with be kept on low throughout the screening, the volume levels will be reduced, there are no trailers or advertisements, customers can move around the cinema and make noise and customers will be able to bring their own food and drinks.
Kayley Worsley, the PR and Communications officer for Dimensions said, “Currently Cineworld are showing the films across 21 cinemas- December’s film will be their first one- but it is hoped this will increase in future months.”
