Our relaxed screenings offer a warm welcome to people who feel overwhelmed by the ordinary cinema environment. These screenings are open to ANYONE who would benefit from a relaxed, non-judgemental atmosphere, including (but not limited to) people living with dementia; people with an autism spectrum condition; people with learning difficulties; people with sensory or communication difficulties; parents with young babies; and anyone who feels they would benefit from a more supportive and inclusive experience.

This delightful and unusual animated tale stars insect characters involved in a simple enough plot: during a raid on a village shop, one of our heroes is accidentally packed into a box of chestnut purée and sent to the Caribbean. There is no alternative but for the whole gang to fly to the rescue. The appeal of this French production lies in the absence of dialogue resulting in a degree of visual flair and wit rarely found in its Hollywood counterparts. ‘A thing of beauty’ – The Observer.
