We thought you might be interested in the big project Dimensions have launched to screen autism and learning disability friendly films.

They’ve teamed up with ODEON to host an autism friendly screening of Mr Popper’s Penguins in cinemas across the country.

The screenings are at 11am on Thursday 11th August.

A full list of all of the 30+ cinemas involved is available at www.dimensions-uk.org/autismfilms

What makes the screenings autism friendly?
The lights will be on low
The volume will be turned down
You’ll be able to take your own food and drinks
You’ll be able to move around the cinema if you like.

Tickets go on sale on 2nd August.

Cinema tickets can be bought as normal from the cinema in your area or online through the ODEON website www.odeon.co.uk.

Support workers/carers can attend for free with a CEA card. To find out more about the CEA card and how to get one please visit www.ceacard.co.uk

If enough people attend on 11th August we hope that ODEON will continue to provide this service each month.

      Hi Tammy
      Thanks for getting in touch – we weren’t responsible for putting this on, just helping to spread the word.
      I should get in touch with Dimensions http://www.dimensions-uk.org/autismfilms/ and see if they’ve got other things planned.
      Where abouts are you based?
      Best wishes
      Stay Up Late
