A CINEMA in Cwmbran is hosting an autism-friendly screening this month as part of a national campaign.
The Vue Cinema in Cwmbran is one of 250 UK cinemas hosting dedicated screenings as part of a partnership with cinemas and Dimensions, a national not-for-profit support provider for people with learning disabilities and autism.
Vue cinemas show their autism friendly screening on the last Sunday of every month and their next showing is Peppa Pig on Sunday, June 25, at 10.15am.
Adjustments include the lights left on low, the volume turned down, no trailers and the freedom for visitors to move around freely within the cinema screen.
Dimensions began the project in August 2011 with just ODEON cinemas - since then the screenings have
grown in popularity, welcoming around 300,000 visits to date.
