Cumbernauld Theatre at Lanternhouse has been in celebratory mood since opening its brand new state-of-the-art cinema in April. And next week it is introducing bespoke sensory-friendly screenings.
Wind Down Wednesdays are for everyone who wants to enjoy a film in a sensory-friendly environment. These relaxed cinema screenings have several adjustments to create an enjoyable, safe and comfy movie experience:
• Unreserved seating with a reduced capacity so that you can choose your seats when you arrive and move freely around the space
• Free tickets for carers
• Lowered film volume
• Softer lighting levels
• No trailers or adverts at the start of the film
• Hand dryers in the toilets switched off
• Clear signage to show you where the cinema, café and toilets are
• Seats outside the cinema to use as a break-out space
• No music in the café/ foyer areas
• Food containers to minimise noise
Thanks to the overwhelming generosity of our supporters, our Christmas Appeal is providing 300 tickets for our festive productions. Groups and organisations are invited to apply now.
