What we're about

A monthly get together for London based earthlings to build friends and share each other's passion for cinema. Each month, one pre-agreed film will be discussed within the quiet, cosy environment of the cafe/bar area in Deptford Cinema, an award-winning not-for-profit community cinema.

Naturally, it is also an excellent opportunity to learn from one another about our individual experiences of autism, with these meetups also functioning as an opportunity for Autistic adults to hang out and socialise with others on the spectrum.

Issues relating to anxiety and sensory concerns will be taken into account, especially given that we experience them too – the meet up will take place in a room with ambient mood lighting. People who attend do not have to have a formal diagnosis, they may have self-diagnosed or simply suspect themselves of being Autistic.

Venue: Deptford Cinema, 39 Deptford Broadway SE8 4PQ (5-minute walk from Deptford Bridge station).

Members & Attendance Guidelines

We encourage those on the spectrum with a love of the Silver Screen (formal diagnosis not required) to join. Our meetups offer a friendly, non-judgmental environment for people on the spectrum. If you would like to take a friend, partner or facilitator as +1 we are open to that so long as they respect and support the aims of the group.
