Relaxed Screenings

We've expanded our cinema programme so you can also enjoy films with your family and friends. 

These screenings are open to everyone, but are designed to welcome people who benefit from a more relaxed environment - those with an Autistic Spectrum condition, sensory and communication disorders and people living with dementia. You can expect:

  • A relaxed attitude to noise and movement in the Filmhouse
  • Friendly staff on hand to make your visit as easy and enjoyable as possible
  • The lights to be on low
  • The volume to be turned down
  • No adverts or trailers before the film

*Look out for our Relaxed Screenings throughout the year online and in our Cinema guide.

Relaxed Events


Our in-person Relaxed Events have been developed in consultation with people living with dementia and their companions / loved ones. These afternoon events are also suitable for anyone who prefers a more relaxed atmosphere. With live entertainment and refreshments, the programme changes every month, but varies to include dance, film, music and / or storytelling - and, of course, a cup of tea/coffee and biscuits! Suggestions for future events are always welcome.
