Autism Friendly Screening: Avengers Endgame

Hebden Bridge Picture House 
Sun 26th May 13:30


Superheroes of the Marvel comic book universe unite in Avengers: Endgame, an epic action blockbuster constructed on a monumental scale and with an insanely starry cast including Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Don Cheadle, Brie Larson and many more. After half of all life in the universe was killed due to the actions of Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War – including Loki (Tom Hiddleston), Benedict Cumberbatch (Dr. Strange) and T’Challa / Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) – the remaining Avengers and their allies reassemble to try and reverse those actions in one final, glorious stand.

About Autism Friendly Screenings:

Our occasional relaxed / autism friendly screenings provide opportunities for people with autism or sensory sensitivity to enjoy a trip to the cinema. They’re for anyone who would benefit from the adapted screening conditions. No-one will ask you whether you should be here, so if you think you’d enjoy coming to a relaxed screening do come along!

We aim to programme a mix of family friendly films (usually a U or PG certificate film) at weekends / during a school holiday. Adjustments at the cinema reduce over-stimulation and create a welcoming place for people with autism and others to enjoy films with their families, friends or carers.

Entry everybody £5.50

Last year's event was our best ever, breaking all records in entrants, spectators and funds raised. With your help we can make this year's event even bigger.

Held in the heart of Hebden Bridge, at Calder Holmes Park, (HX7 8AU), most of the famous British marques are represented at the rally, along with famous names from across the world. The open plan layout of the site allows members of the public to get up close to the exhibits and chat to their owners. There are different display classes over the two days offering visitors a completely different show each day. Prizes will be awarded to all the winning entrants.
