Introducing ‘Wind Down Wednesdays’ at Lanternhouse Cinema

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

The first Wind Down Wednesdays will be Aladdin on Wednesday 5 October and Ticket to Paradise on 12 October. You can find our latest Wind Down Wednesday screenings here.
