Relaxed screening: Mary and the Witch’s Flower

Award-winning director Hiromasa Yonebayashi – whose work for Studio Ghibli included the beloved Arriety and When Marnie Was here – continues his fine form with the recently formed Studio Ponoc. The narrative centres on an awkward young girl who is given a place at a top-secret school for witches. Based on the 1971 novel The Little Broomstick by British author Mary Stewart, this is a sublime animated adventure that is full of charm and innovation.

This is a relaxed screening.
Relaxed events are designed for people  with autism spectrum conditions and their families so they can enjoy the arts together in a stress-free environment.
These events are also suitable for people with sensory conditions or learning difficulties.
For this event, we will keep the cinema lights on low and turn the volume down a little. There will be no trailers or advertisements before the film starts and you are welcome to move around the cinema if you want to. A separate chill out space will be provided if you need some time out of the screening.
