Access Cinema

Tyneside Cinema’s sensory friendly screenings for people with autism, learning disabilities and/or additional needs and their families. The screenings are open to everyone.

Access Cinema is a series of shows for people who prefer to see a film in a low sensory environment. 

When you come to Access Cinema you can enjoy great family films with the sound turned down a touch and the lights up a little. There won't be any adverts or trailers to sit through and our team will be on hand throughout the screening if you need any help. We also have a chill-out space handy if you want to take a break, and if you want to move around or make a bit of noise that's absolutely fine.

Where possible the screenings also feature HOH subtitles.

Access Cinema screenings run fortnightly on Sundays at 10:30.

The next Access Cinema screening is The Lego Batman Movie (U) on Sunday 2 April, 10.30am. Tickets available here.

Access Screenings April:

The Lego Batman Movie (U) Sunday 2 April, 10.30am

The Lego Batman Movie (U) Monday 10 April 12.30pm.


Tickets cost just £4.00 for everybody. Carers with a carer's pass, or accompanying the holder of a Max Card, HUB Card or CEA pass will be admitted for FREE (one companion per party).
