Our relaxed screening adjustments include:

  • Doors will open 30 minutes before the screening start time.
  • No trailers will be shown.
  • The programme will be introduced.
  • Customers will be able to choose their own seats in the auditorium, but we will do our best to accommodate any specific seating requests.
  • Our house lights will remain on a low level throughout the screening, and the volume will be turned slightly down.
  • Please feel free to move around in the auditorium and make noise.
  • There will be a safe space for customers to use if they need to leave the auditorium.

    During the Festival we will be hosting a relaxed event in the Blue Room each day from from Friday 21 to Sunday 23 February. These events are accessible for people in the neuro-diverse community and their carers and assistants, so they can enjoy our industry events in a stress-free environment. Discounted Festival passes available for CEA card holders.
