CITY Screen, York, will play host to both an Autism-Friendly screening and a Dementia-Friendly screening on Monday.

Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them will be shown at 10.30am specially for people on the autism spectrum or with other special needs and their families, friends and carers. Adults without disabilities are only admitted if they are accompanying a child or a person on the autism spectrum/with special needs.

Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them is an all-new adventure that returns to the wizarding world created by J. K. Rowling. The film opens in 1926 as Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) has just completed a global excursion to find and document an extraordinary array of magical creatures.

At 1.15pm, Meet Me In St. Louis will be open to all but especially for people with dementia and their family, friends and carers. Complimentary tea, coffee and biscuits will be on offer before the screening and there will be a 20-minute interval halfway through the film.

Released in 1944, Meet Me In St. Louis is a heartwarming musical from Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. Alonzo Smith, a banker and a father, is considering whether to uproot his family to New York, scuttling the romance of his daughter Esther (Judy Garland) and boy-next-door John Truett (Tom Drake) and causing similar emotional trauma for the rest of the household.

Tickets can be booked at or on 0871 902 5726.
