As voted for by the Storyhouse Elders Focus Group. This screening will be Relaxed.
Relaxed screenings at Storyhouse are for anyone who would welcome watching a film in a more relaxed environment. They have been designed to be friendlier to people with cognitive & sensory disorders, autism spectrum conditions, or dementia. The screenings are open to all, even if you don’t need the adjustments we make for these screenings.
In relaxed screenings, we keep the cinema lights on low and adjust the volume of the film so that it is not as loud as usual. You are free to move around, and leave and re-enter the cinema when you like. There will be a more relaxed attitude towards noise and talking during the screening.
