Bookings for the October cinema session is now open. Please reserve your family’s places through our Eventbrite page.

The movie that we will show this month is “Puss in Boots: The Last Wish” – Much thanks to all of you who answered the poll for what to screen in October. 🙂

Join us and other families of children and young people with Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities (SEND) for a FREE relaxed screening of “Puss in Boots: The Last Wish!

Siblings and other family members without SEND are also welcome to join.

Each guest will receive free popcorn.

Important Notes:

  • You will remain responsible for your family’s safety and well-being during the cinema session. Please ensure that your children are supervised by a responsible adult at all times during the screening.
  • This session is part of Manchester’s SEND Community Offer. The cinema screening is exclusively for families of children and young people with SEND living in a ward/area covered by Manchester City Council.
  • Let us know if you wish to have table reservations for a post-movie bite-to-eat. This weekend, GRUB will have stallholders at their Food Fair downstairs from the cinema: enjoy amazing food from the likes of Killa Carbs, Noble’s Kitchen, Korean Grub Club, and Mary’s Cakery Makery. Please note that your ticket only covers table reservations; food and drink purchases will be at your own cost.
  • Use of the cinema is subject to GRUB/Cultplex’s terms and conditions. Please ensure that you’ve read the T&Cs before booking.


Much thanks to the SEND Local Offer for making this possible.

We’d also like to thank GRUB for providing us with a wonderful cinema package that families can enjoy.
