The Empire multiplex at Hemel Hempstead’s Jarman Park complex will be showing two blockbuster movies in an ‘autism-friendly’ format next week.

People affected by autism can rarely venture to mainstream screenings because they are unsettled by sound levels, darkness and other factors.

But for screenings of Muppets Most Wanted next Wednesday and Rio 2 on Sunday, April 6 special conditions will allow them, as well as families and carers, to enjoy brand new releases in a cinema setting.
