Relaxed Screening: Rocketman (15)

Taron Egerton as Elton John singing at a piano

A musical fantasy about a fantastical man, Taron Egerton is electrifying as a young Sir Elton John.

Brought to screen by the BAFTA-nominated Dexter Fletcher fresh from Bohemian Rhapsody success, Rocketman uses John's iconic back catalogue of music to retell his formative years.

In a career best, Egerton embodies the star's highs and lows coming to stardom and into his sexuality, struggling with depression, substance abuse and acceptance. With supporting turns from Richard Madden (Bodyguard), Bryce Dallas Howard (Black Mirror) and Jamie Bell (Film Stars Don't Die In Liverpool).

Relaxed Screenings
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. Staff are trained and ready to assist with any help the audience may need during these trips to the cinema at Barbican.
