Pain and Glory (15)

Relaxed Screening

Antonia Banderas in Pain and Glory

Pedro Almodóvar's latest film is vibrant, full of colour, comedy and bitter sweet themes about life and art intertwining

Antonio Banderas is Salvador Mallo, a successful film director suffering with physical and emotional pain that riddles his mind and body. As he falls in to hopelessness he reflects upon his life and childhood, always returning to a particularly significant figure, his mother (Penélope Cruz and Julieta Serrano).

Relaxed screenings are specially tailored for film fans who may be on the autistic spectrum, have Tourette Syndrome, anxiety, sensory difficulties or other learning disabilities.

The cinema environment is tailored to the needs of the audience by having the lights dimmed, though not off, and the volume levels a little lower than usual. Attendees are free to sit in whichever seat they like and can enter and exit the room at any time, with easy access for any wheelchair users. Attendees are free to make noise in these screenings. Staff are trained and ready to assist with any help the audience may need during these trips to the cinema at Barbican.
