Sensory Screenings

We’re delighted to host special sensory screenings one Sunday morning each month at all HOYTS cinema locations. We’ll dim the lights and soften the volume so anyone with autism or sensory needs can feel safe in a calming and accepting environment. Our hope is that guests with sensory difficulties become more familiar with the cinema environment.
