A typical cinema environment can be stressful for guests with autism, sensory difficulties or learning impairments. Ace cinemas are delighted to host autism friendly screenings one Sunday morning each month at our Midland & Rockingham locations.

At our sensory friendly screenings, we

  • Keep the house lights on throughout the film
  • Lower the audio volume
  • Remove the advertising and trailers before the film
  • You'll be able to move around the cinema if you like
  • Dance, Walk, Shout, even Sing!

The goal of sensory friendly screenings is for families to be able to relax and enjoy quality family time without worrying if others will be disturbed or complain. 

Minions: The Rise of Gru
In the heart of the 1970s, amidst a flurry of feathered hair and flared jeans, Gru (Steve Carell) is growing up in the suburbs. A fanboy of a supervillain supergroup known as the Vicious 6, Gru hatches a plan to become evil enough to join them. Luckily, he gets some mayhem-making back-up from his loyal followers, the Minions. Together, Kevin, Stuart, Bob, and Otto - a new Minion sporting braces and a desperate need to please - deploy their skills as they and Gru build their first lair, experiment with their first weapons, and pull off their first missions. When the Vicious 6 oust their leader, legendary fighter Wild Knuckles (Alan Arkin), Gru interviews to become their newest member. It doesn't go well (to say the least), and only gets worse after Gru outsmarts them and suddenly finds himself the mortal enemy of the apex of evil. On the run, Gru will turn to an unlikely source for guidance, Wild Knuckles, and discover that even bad guys need a little help from their friends.
