Relaxed Screenings

(Autism friendly screenings)

 

 

 

What are they?

Autism-Friendly Screenings are subtly-adapted screenings which create an environment that is welcoming for people with a range of conditions such as autism, learning disabilities and cognitive disorders. They have sound levels turned down, the lights left on at a low level and there are no trailers at the beginning of the film. Film-goers are free to bring their own food and drinks to the cinema, are able to make noise and to sit where they feel most comfortable. Seats are sold on an unallocated basis for these screenings, and a quiet room is made available adjacent to the auditorium should anyone require to use it.

 

The next relaxed screenings will be:

 
Smallfoot (U) - Saturday 27 October @ 10.20am
 
The Grinch (U tbc) - Saturday 24 November @ 11.00am
 
Mary Poppins Returns (PG tbc) - Saturday 22 December @ 11.45am

Subtitled Screenings

 

 

What are they?

Subtitled screenings provide a transcription of the audio from a film, displayed at the bottom of the cinema screen.  Along with the dialogue from the film, the subtitles include non-dialogue audio such as "(sighs)" or "(door creaks)".

 

Who can benefit from them?

People who are hard of hearing.

 

The next subtitled screenings will be:

The Little Stranger (12A) - Monday 22 October @ 5.50pm

A Simple Favour (15) - Tuesday 23 October @ 8.15pm

First Man (12A) - Thursday 25 October @ 5.30pm

A Star Is Born (15) - Friday 26 October @ 8.20pm

Johnny English: Strikes Again (PG) - Monday 29 October @ 5.45pm

Please note, subtitling is not always available on all film titles.  Wherever possible we will endeavour to show at least one subtitled screening of those films that do carry subtitling.

 

 

 

Audio Described Screenings

 

 

What are they?

Audio Described screenings provide a pre-recorded voice commentary that describes features such as action, body language, expressions and movements during the film. The commentary fits within the silent gaps in a film, so it doesn't interfere with the dialogue. It is a separate soundtrack broadcast through wireless headphones which only the wearer can hear. Please speak to our box office should you require a headset.

 

Who can benefit from this facility?

Visually impaired people. For more information please visit: http://www.rnib.org.uk

 

 

 

AUDIO REINFORCEMENT

 

 

 

Audio reinforcement is also available on all of our cinema screenings and live broadcast events.

 

What is it?

Audio reinforcement is a facility that amplifies the cinema screenings soundtrack via a headset. This works in place of your hearing aid. Please ask or box office for headphones if you would like to make use of this service.

 

Who can benefit from this facility?

People who are hard of hearing.

 

All of the films shown below carry Audio Description and Audio Reinforcement:
