Some of our screens are equipped with infrared technology to provide hearing assistance. Simply let a member of our staff know when you're purchasing your tickets and they'll organise a headset or neckloop for you. We recommend arriving a little earlier than you normally would so we can get you set up in time for the film.
- Autism-friendly screenings
In our autism-friendly screenings, the lights are left on low, the sound is turned down and trailers and adverts aren't played. When you book tickets for an autism-friendly screening, you’ll be asked to choose allocated seats but we do encourage guests to move around during the screening and make a bit of noise.
Vue Thanet (Westwood Cross) hosts an autism-friendly screening at 10am on the last Sunday of every month. You can book that and other autism-friendly screenings here. Select All Times or Coming Soon to see the full range of screenings available.
