Scott Cinemas run Supportive Screenings at our cinemas in Barnstaple, Bridgwater, Bristol, East Grinstead & Exmouth.
Supportive Screenings are often attended by those with autism or dementia, and are designed to present a more relaxed environment than a typical film screening. They are often referred to as "AFS" or "DFS" screenings.
These are shows that are held in a supportive environment - lighting is left at half level, sound is turned down low, and people are free to move around the auditorium and talk to others.
How does a Supportive Screening differ from any other cinema screening?
- House lights are left on low setting;
- The sound is turned down to a lower volume;
- There will be no trailers or ads before the film;
- People are allowed to move around during the screening and make some noise;
- The film will start promptly at the time advertised
