A CHARITY which supports those with autism is having its first ever cinema screening for those with the condition.

The autism-friendly screening of Ice Age 3 will be taking place tomorrow at the Hollywood Cinema in Bury St Edmunds at 10am.

A spokeswoman for the west Suffolk branch of the National Autistic Society said during the film the lights would be kept on and the sound levels would be at a comfortably low level.

She said: “It is really good to know that we have several families joining us for this event who have never been able to go to the cinema before.

“You don't need to be a member of West Suffolk National Autistic Society to join in the fun.

“There will be plenty of room so we encourage members to bring family and friends to share the experience and to boost the numbers a bit.”

Tickets will cost �3 per head and tickets can be bought from the cinema. The usual kiosk snacks will be available to buy on the day, but it is fine to bring along your own preferred snacks instead.
