PEOPLE with autism can enjoy a sensory-friendly screening of Muppets Most Wanted which will take place on Wednesday (April 2).

Lights will be left on low and the sound will be turned down at the special screening of the film at 4.15pm to mark World Autism Awareness Day.

The adjustments, which also include eliminating adverts, will allow cinema goers who benefit from the alterations to enjoy the latest Muppets adventure starring Ricky Gervais, Kermit and Miss Piggy.

Robert Wilkins, general manager at Vue Worcester, said: “At Vue Worcester we are dedicated to providing all our customers with the best cinematic experience possible.

“We are therefore delighted to be bringing The Muppets Most Wanted autism friendly screening to our customers to mark World Autism Awareness Day and aim to provide cinema goers with an enjoyable experience specifically tailored to their needs.”

Disney’s Muppets Most Wanted sees the entire Muppets gang go on a global tour, selling out grand theatres in some of Europe’s most exciting destinations, including Berlin, Madrid and London.

But mayhem follows the Muppets overseas, as they find themselves unwittingly entangled in an international crime caper headed by Constantine – the World’s Number One Criminal and a dead ringer for Kermit – and his dastardly sidekick Dominic, also known as Number Two.
