Post by onandoffagain on Wed Apr 18, 2012 12:14 am

I can't o to the cinema as it triggers massive migraine attacks, but my son attends a children autism friendly screening which has reduced sound and contrast which i can watch, some cinemas are extending this provision to adult screenings of 15 and 18 films and I am starting to gather info as to whether we could link with the NAS to benefit people with Migraine to use these screenings as well. I would love to hear your comments. xx

My problem isn't with regular 2D cinema, but with 3D. It makes me feel sick and gives me a migraine. I really hope it turns out to be a fad, but it seems to have been around for ages now.

I never go to 3D and when I go to 2D I wear sunglasses and take ear plugs (the little yellow ones) ... but even that did not work last time.... sometimes its the way its filmed ie those camera shots which are hand held and bob all the time... Would be nice to see if there was a link to a page which lists all the suitable showings Smile

So long as there is little in the way of on-screen effects, I am able to watch both 2D and 3D movies. However if there is a lot of action, bright lights, rapid changes in illumination or loud sound effects, it's a case of having to withdraw to the lobby and wait till my wife appears after the movie ends.....

Yes i agree totally with the type of film, one of the worst i watched was fantastic mr fox (great film) but the screen moved so quickly, made me feel very unwell!

I agree on the hand held camera shots. I remember watching The Bourne Identity and feeling sick during the constant shaky camera work in the car chases! But nothing will ever top Avatar in 3D - my stomach was lurching right from the start - I've no idea how I stuck it out.

Hi Tee, Cineworld and Odeon also do screenings, if you do a search for autism freindly screenings in your area the local autism branch of the NAS or area equivalent or your local cinema will advertise its screening. There is one in nearly every cinema in the UK now.

It would be great if those of you who really struggle with the sound and lighting etc could enjoy the cinema again. I'll be interested to hear how you get on.
