Open screenings

Inclusive screenings are aimed at making film art accessible to all and thus eliminating cultural, systematic and physical barriers to visiting the cinema. At the same time, we want to motivate our regular visitors to attend these screenings and sensitize them. On a regular basis, we bring a program for various vulnerable groups, including autistic people, seniors suffering from cognitive impairments and people with visual or hearing disabilities, which is specially adapted to their needs.

Autism-friendly screenings

The screenings are intended for an audience with an exceptional perception of the world. During the screenings, the viewers have the opportunity to move freely around the cinema and act spontaneously in a safe and tolerant environment, and no one will warn them and stop their natural expression. During the events, the light is dimmed in the cinema hall and the film is played with a muffled sound.

Dementia-friendly screenings

The screenings are intended for people suffering from dementia or other cognitive impairment and serve as an opportunity to participate in “normal” activity. During the events, the light is dimmed in the cinema hall and the film is played with a muffled sound. When choosing a film, we focus on its memorable and nostalgic value.

Blind-friendly screenings

The screenings are intended for blind and short-sighted viewers. The film is complemented by an audio commentary, which describes the story, scenes, actors and their facial expressions in detail to the visitors.

Deaf-friendly screenings

The screenings are intended for deaf and hard of hearing spectators. In 2021, we installed an induction loop in our large cinema, which ensures the transmission of sound to the hearing aids of the hearing impaired. The events are complemented by specially adapted subtitles, which are colour-coded and thus enable a full-fledged experience for the audience.


The screenings are organized as part of the Otvorený Úsmev and KÓSY KINO project thanks to the support of ACF – Slovakia, EEA Grants and the state budget of the Slovak Republic.
