Everybody is included at The Arc Cinema and we welcome those with sensory difficulties, along with their families and friends, to our relaxed screenings. We make some minor adjustments to ensure these special performances are better suited to those with sensory difficulties:
Lights are dimmed throughout the screening to avoid total darkness
Sound levels are turned down a little
No noisy trailers before the film
We understand that customers may make some noise, or may not stay fully seated in the auditorium throughout the screening
These adjustments are designed to ensure that customers with sensory difficulties and their families and friends can enjoy a cinema experience together, in a suitable environment.
Screenings are scheduled Sunday morning for a children's movie and Wednesday afternoon for a grown up film, every week and are noted on our website as "Sensory".
Tickets can be pre-booked either online or at the cinema, or can be bought on the morning of the screening. See below what is coming up.
