Cinema's autism friendly films

First published in Local

VUE cinema in Redditch is inviting Redditch and Bromsgrove youngsters with autism to its autism friendly films.

Autism friendly films are special screenings of children's films, where subtle changes to the traditional cinema environment have been made.

At Vue cinema in Redditch, the lights will be left on low, the sound is turned down, trailers and adverts are not played and it is OK for people to move around if they wish to during the screening and make a bit of noise.

Vue Redditch manager Anthony Lockett said: ‘Vue Cinemas are dedicated to providing great service to all our guests and strive to meet all our customers' needs.

"This is a great facility we are proud to be able to offer here at Vue Redditch and are looking to spread the word as much as possible."

Autism friendly films are screened at Vue Redditch at 10am on the last Sunday of every month and tickets are at Kids Club prices. January's autism friendly film is Free Birds on Sunday, January 26 at 10am.
