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.
Set at the dawn of time, when prehistoric creatures and woolly mammoths roamed the earth, meet Dug, a member of a stoneage tribe living in a peaceful valley. All is well until mighty new enemy Lord Nooth and his Bronze Age City turn up and want to claim the valley for themselves! It’s up to plucky Dug, along with sidekick Hognob to unite the tribe and save their home (while inadvertently inventing the game of football in the process!) in the new animation from Aardman.
