Autism Friendly Screenings

The Hippodrome is proud to announce another season of screenings for young people with autism and their families. At these screenings the film and the cinema environment within the Hippodrome will be suitable for children with autism spectrum disorders and/or sensory hypersensitivity. The screenings are priced as normal and everyone is welcome to these screenings but do note that the following modifications will be observed:

  • No adverts / trailers
  • Modified lighting (ie brighter lit in the auditorium)
  • Reduced volume
  • A relaxed approach to moving from your seat
  • The option to bring your own refreshments if specific dietary requirements are not available from the Hippodrome cafĂ©

If there are any other ways that we can assist you and your child at the film - just ask one of our team.

The Hippodrome is part of the CEA (Cinema Exhibitors Association) Card scheme whereby a CEA card holder is entitled to one free ticket for a person accompanying them to the cinema.

People in receipt of Disability Living Allowance, Attendance Allowance, or Personal Independence Payment and Registered Blind people can join the CEA Card scheme. You can apply for the card online.
