Autism Friendly Screenings are films shown with low-level lighting, reduced sound-levels and no adverts or trailers. The auditorium will open 30 minutes before the film to allow audiences time to familiarise themselves with the space. Visits to the venue prior to the screening can also be arranged. Aimed at both children and adults on the autistic spectrum, along with their carers, families and/or friends, it is fine for audiences to move around, make noise and take breaks during the film.
When ace detective Harry Goodman goes mysteriously missing, his 21-year-old son Tim sets out to find out what happened to him. Aiding in the investigation is Harry’s former Pokemon partner, Detective Pikachu, a hilariously wise-cracking, adorable super-sleuth who is a puzzlement even to himself. Finding that they are uniquely equipped to work together, as Tim is the only human who can understand Pikachu, they join forces to unravel the tangled mystery. Chasing clues through the neon-lit streets of sprawling, modern metropolis Ryme City, where humans and Pokemon live side by side, they encounter a diverse cast of Pokemon characters and uncover a shocking plot that could destroy this peaceful co-existence and threaten the whole Pokemon universe in this fantasy adventure.
