Greta Gerwig directs an all-star cast in this fresh take on a literary classic

Director and writer Greta Gerwig (Lady Bird) brings together an incredible cast including Saoirse Ronan, Meryl Streep, Timothée Chalamet, Emma Watson, Laura Dern and Florence Pugh for her second feature film. 

Little Women follows the lives of four sisters - Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy March - charting their journey from childhood to womanhood. Despite harsh times, they cling to optimism, and as they mature, they face blossoming ambitions and relationships, as well as tragedy, while maintaining their unbreakable bond as sisters.

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.

A visual guide to our cinemas is available to download.
