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.
Young Simba idolizes his father, King Mufasa, and takes to heart his own royal destiny. But not everyone in the kingdom celebrates the new cub’s arrival as Scar, Mufasa’s brother—and former heir to the throne—has plans of his own. With help from a curious pair of newfound friends, Simba will have to figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his, while learning the true meaning of responsibility and bravery. This live action re-make of Disney’s animated classic features an all-star cast, including Donald Glover, Beyoncé and James Earl Jones reprising his role as Mufasa.
