At Beacon House we know that taking some children to the cinema can be a stressful experience for everyone, leading to it never being repeated again! We have also learnt from parents & carers that not being able to do ‘normal’ things can leave them feeling alienated and excluded.
We would like to invite all parents, carers, grandparents, and childminders of children who struggle to sit still in a cinema to join one of our Family Friendly Cinemas!
Natural light, adaptable and cosy seating, sensitive sound levels and low ticket numbers means we can offer a calm and pleasurable family cinema experience. With a break out room available for sensory or quiet breaks, we offer an opportunity for families to spend time together in a relaxed and judgement free environment.
The screenings are facilitated by a member of the Beacon House Team who is also an adoptive parent and brings with her lots of empathy and understanding!
