Autism Friendly Screenings at Odeon Cinema (Aylesbury)

As part of their Corporate Social Responsibility and to promote greater social inclusion, ODEON is delighted to host specially adapted Autism Friendly Screenings of new releases one Sunday morning each month. Partnering with Dimensions (a not for profit organisation providing support services for people with learning disabilities) ODEON offer Autism Friendly Screenings in over 90 ODEON cinemas through-out the UK and Ireland, and Aylesbury is one of those.

What makes the screening autism-friendly?

The special performances have subtle changes to the cinema environment which mean that people who have sensory difficulties have a more positive experience than they would in a traditional cinema setting. Changes include:

  • The lights being kept on at a low level 
  • Lower than usual sound levels
  • No trailers or advertisements - just the film
  • Allowance for increased levels of movement and noise

Their hope is that, as guests with sensory difficulties become more familiar with the cinema environment, at some point they will feel comfortable with attending standard screenings.

You can find out the details of the screenings at your local cinema in Aylesbury and Milton Keynes on the Dimensions website.
