World Autism Day at The Hippodrome

X+Y movie - World Autism Day

Falkirk Community Trust is excited to announce they will be taking part in, a nationwide programme of Autism Friendly screenings at cinemas across the country. 

With support from autism support provider Dimensions and leading charity The National Autistic Society, these screenings will provide a further boost to UK’s growing cinema audience for people with autism.

Autism Friendly Screenings have reduced sound levels, increased lighting and advert-free content allowing this audience group, their families and carers to be comfortable and feel fully included in the unique experience of a trip to the cinema.

The Hippodrome already boasts a range of Autism Friendly screenings each season but for World Autism Day 2015 they will be screening their first autism friendly movie aimed at adults ‘X+Y’ which stars Asa Butterfield, the young star of ‘The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas’ – who plays the part of a socially awkward boy diagnosed with a form of autism and who finds he can make sense of the world through the rational, purity of maths.
