SIGN UP FOR OUR AUTISM FRIENDLY FILM CLUB!
The Autism All Stars Film Club runs at Cineworld in Crawley at 11 am on the first Sunday of every month.
The idea behind the film club is to provide a safe, welcoming and most importantly FUN, autism-friendly environment where families can come and do something they enjoy without worrying about being judged by people who don’t understand how autism works.
Everyone is welcome, whatever age or ability they are, and we really look forward to seeing lots of people there every month.
Here are the answers to some of the questions we’re asked most frequently…
Where is Cineworld Crawley?
Cineworld is at the centre of the Crawley Leisure Park on London Road. Click here for full directions: GETTING TO CINEWORLD
What is an Autism Friendly Screening?
At a Cineworld autism-friendly screening there are no adverts or trailers; the lights are kept high and the volume is kept low. You can bring your own food, make a noise and move around the cinema freely during the film. There’s no allocated seating and for every autistic person who comes along, one parent or carer gets in absolutely free if they have a current CEA card.
You can apply for a card here: http://www.ceacard.co.uk/ and the good news is that they work at any screenings, not just relaxed performances.
How Often Does the Club Run?
The club is held on the first Sunday of every month and films start at 11am.
Which Films Will be Shown?
All films will be from the current Family Films catalogue being shown at Cineworld at the time. We usually know which film is coming up between one to two weeks in advance and will let you know as soon as we can – click on ‘Events’ on the front page of the website for full details.
How Does the Club Work?
Firstly, we have TWENTY FREE TICKETS to give away to our members every month – UP TO A MAXIMUM OF TWO FREE TICKETS PER FAMILY. That can be two children’s tickets or one child and one adult ticket per family, providing children are on the autism spectrum. Remember, if your child has a CEA card then one of the adults with them will get in free, meaning a family of three can attend completely free!
If you’d like to apply for some tickets, just complete the form below, STATING HOW MANY CHILD TICKETS AND HOW MANY CARER (CEA) OR ADULT TICKETS YOU’D LIKE, send it off and we’ll let you know if you’re one of the lucky ones this month.
If you are we’ll let you know, and on the morning of the screening you’ll be sent a booking reference for your prepaid tickets that you can enter into the ticket machines.
If you don’t win tickets, you can still come along and see the film. Tickets for the showings are £9.40 per child, and remember one parent or carer gets in free for every person with autism who attends using a CEA card. If you’re booking online, you can get a free adult ticket using a CEA card reference number (you can apply for a card here: http://www.ceacard.co.uk/) or to get a free adult ticket without a CEA card, you’ll need to book in person at the cinema.
