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.
Struggling circus owner Max Medici enlists former star Holt Farrier to care for Dumbo, a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him a laughingstock within the failing troupe. But when it’s discovered that little Dumbo can fly, the circus makes an incredible comeback. Attracted by their newfound success is the persuasive entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere, who recruits the peculiar pachyderm for his newest, larger-than-life entertainment venture, Dreamland. Dumbo soars to new heights alongside spectacular aerial artist Colette in the circus extravaganza, until Holt and friends discover the dark secrets beneath its shiny veneer.
