Relaxed Saturdays: Family Time and Autism-Friendly Screenings

On Saturday mornings, our Family Time strand offers family-friendly relaxed screenings. In 2024, these will be followed by autism-friendly relaxed screenings showing the latest big releases.

Family Time

Every Saturday at 11am, Family Time welcomes all ages to experience the most beloved modern and classic cinema on the big screen.

Films in the Family Time programme will be suitable for varying ages, so we encourage you to read the guidance on the film page if you are unsure about suitability for your little one.

With tickets at £5 for all ages, and a relaxed, accessible atmosphere (including subtitles and low-level lighting), Family Time is the perfect way to introduce the kids in your life to old favourites and the magic of cinema in a comfortable, welcoming environment.

Family Time screenings start at 11am with no adverts, however we will play a few relevant trailers before the start of each film.

And remember - everyone is welcome! Though Family Time is aimed at families, Showroom believes that these come in all shapes and sizes; grown-ups and friends are welcome too. Children under 12 should always be accompanied by an adult.

We have a special combo offer for under 15s - get a small drink and popcorn for £6 at the box office. We have options for children on our menu - enjoy 10% off any food you purchase in our bar by showing your Family Time ticket.

Autism-Friendly Screenings

Every Saturday at 1.30pm, enjoy the latest releases in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere.

These screenings have no adverts or trailers and offer unallocated seating, large screen space for movement, reduced film sound volume and low lighting during the film. Standard ticket prices applies.
