The autism friendly adjustments that cinemas make are designed to make them more inclusive and accessible for people with sensory sensitivities, and others who can benefit from this environment.

Adjustments include

  • a relaxed environment where people understand the needs of children and families with autism
  • lights left on low
  • sound turned down
  • no trailers or advertisements (unless they are embedded in the film)
  • staff trained in autism awareness
  • disabled access
  • chill out zone, where available
  • freedom to move around and sit where you like
  • bring your own food and drink
