Autism Friendly Screenings

Autism Friendly Screenings are film screenings especially for people on the autism spectrum, people with other learning difficulties or complex needs, as well as their families, friends and carers. More Info about the Screenings.


Autism Friendly screenings take place on the 3rd Sunday of the month at all participating Picturehouse Cinemas. 

We also hold autism friendly schools screenings for teachers to book once each half term. Info on AF Schools screenings. 

Upcoming Screenings

January 2019

A seasonal animated caper about friendship, courage and the joy of discovery, 'Smallfoot' turns the Bigfoot legend upside down...

When a bright young Yeti finds something he thought didn't exist—a human - news of this 'smallfoot' brings him fame and a chance with the girl of his dreams. It also throws the simple Yeti community into an uproar over what else might be out there in the big world beyond their snowy village.

February 2018

Developed by The Lego Movie masterminds Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, who wanted the film to feel like ‘walking inside a comic book’, Into The Spider-Verse is the freshest Spider-Man story yet, and delivers a dynamic blend of humour, action and gorgeous, groundbreaking animation.

During Autism Friendly Screenings low lights are left on in the auditorium and the volume of the soundtrack is reduced. It is fine for customers to move around, make noise or take a break during the film.
