Several cinemas in London are now running autism-friendly screenings of children's films. The sound track is played at a lower level to suit those hyper-sensitive to sounds and sudden loud noises. Low-level lighting remains on throughout the screening and no-one minds if viewers make noise, move around or go out for breaks during the film. Stratford Picture House Cinema is Tower Hamlets nearest autism-friendly cinema. Tickets cost £3 for everyone (there are no concessions or free tickets for support workers).
