Autism-friendly screenings

People on the autism spectrum may find ordinary cinema visits difficult or stressful. With this in mind, Depot runs regular screenings that offer a more relaxed experience.

In autism-friendly screenings, there are no trailers or adverts. We also make sure the sound is not too loud and the house lights are not so dark.

There’s also an easy-going attitude to comings and goings, if people need to move around or a break from the screening.

These screenings are exclusively for children with autism and their families.
