Autism Friendly Screenings

Firstsite is pleased to be screening family films in a sensory friendly and inclusive environment during school holidays. The following adjustments will be made, which aim to reduce over-stimulation and create a welcoming environment:

– A relaxed environment where people understand the needs of children and families with autism

– Auditorium lights kept at a low level

– Sound played at a lower level

– No trailers or additions are played before the film

– Freedom of seating for guests: (something about being able to move once film begins, though to book you will need to select seats)

– Availability of a chill out zone close to the Auditorium

– Free entry for those with a valid CEA Card

Social stories are also available to download for each screening so attendees know what to expect.
