Autism Friendly Screenings – October 2010

Picturehouse cinemas are working in partnership with The National Autistic Society to hold special film screenings for people on the autism spectrum and their families, friends and carers.

During the film low lights are left on inside the auditorium and the volume of the soundtrack is reduced. It is fine for customers to move around, make a noise or take a break during the film if they need to.

The National Autistic Society is the UK’s leading charity for people affected by autism. If you need information, advice and support, call The National Autistic Society’s Autism Helpline on 0845 070 4004 (Mon-Fri, 10-4).

STRATFORD CINEMA CLUB
in association with
Newham People First

Stratford Picturehouse has joined forces with People First Newham – a support group run by and for learning disabled adults – to make cinema going more enjoyable for adults with learning disabilities and other special needs.

On the first Tuesday of every month Stratford Picturehouse will screen 2 films from the main programme with an interval half-way through for those of you that find sitting down for a full 2 hours a struggle.

The cinema doors open at 12.30pm and the films start at 1pm. Tea/coffee and biscuits are available from the upstairs bar area, before, during and after the screenings so you can chat about the movie with other cinema club members.
