April is Autism Awareness month - a time where businesses and venues are encouraged to get clued up on how to be inclusive and understanding about the needs of people with autism spectrum disorders.
In Newcastle, Tyneside Cinema encourages people with autism to enjoy films on the big screen by organising autism-friendly movie showings every fortnight.
Autism-friendly screenings are intended to open up cinemas and cinema-going to people with autism and may help people with autism transition into attending traditional screenings.
