Relaxed screenings

Relaxed screenings are presented each month for those in the neuro-diverse community, their assistants and carers.

BFI Southbank has been awarded the National Autistic Society's Autism Friendly Award.

National Autistic Society's Autism Friendly Award

Find out more about all films screening with subtitles, hard of hearing subtitles, audio description, and relaxed screenings.

Tickets can be booked in advance either online, by calling (020 7928 3232) or emailing the box office (box.office@bfi.org.uk).

We will post a new Relaxed Cinema Screenings Guide to download in June.

Up to March 2020 our relaxed screening adjustments included:

  • 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.

We await government guidelines and our consequent building Covid safety plan audit to help us define relaxed screening adjustments going forward. More information will be posted here as it is announced.
