SENSORY-FRIENDLY SCREENINGS

THE INITIATIVE

Cinema City together with z Autypilot - podróże w świat dzieci z autyzmem and Fundacja Pomoc Autyzm are co-organizers of the program: "KINO PRZYJAZNE SENSORYCZNIE" ("SENSORY-FRIENDLY CINEMA").

Since January 27, 2018, Cinema City, as a partner of the initiative, has opened its theaters for special periodic screenings that will allow children and parents, as well as youth and adults with autism, to enjoy cinematic entertainment. Sensory-friendly movie screenings, which take into account the specific difficulties of people on the autism spectrum, are a great way to enjoy cultural offerings.

SENSORY-FRIENDLY SCREENINGS

We want everyone to feel comfortable at Cinema City, so we offer the option of sensory-friendly screenings by providing the right conditions in the screening room:

  • This is a morning show at a quiet time.
  • The lights are dimmed.
  • The sound is quieter than usual.
  • There is no rule of total silence in the audience.
  • The screening room is partially filled.
  • There is no entrance fee for caregivers.


SCHEDULE OF UPCOMING SCREENINGS:
