Escape the stress of Christmas with Cineworld's soothing ASMR film Dreaming of Stars

Enjoy a welcome respite from the stress of Christmas with the first feature-length ASMR film ever to be shown on the big screen. 

In Cineworld’s Dreaming Of Stars: An ASMR Feature Film, actor Malcolm McDowell (A Clockwork Orange) lends his iconic voice to create a relaxing experience in the stressful run-up to the festive period.

"I hope the public enjoy my dulcet tones and can use the film to take a moment to relax during a hectic day out," McDowell says. In addition to the 90-minute screening, Cineworld will be releasing daily #CinemASMR content from YouTuber Atlas ASMR who will be providing relaxation in the inevitably hectic build towards Christmas.

So, what is ASMR? Put simply, ASMR (translated as 'autonomous sensory meridian response') is a sensation caused by comforting and sedate sights and sounds and is often referred to as a ‘massage for the brain’. It is the third most searched term on YouTube worldwide and Google searches reached an all-time high at the start of the pandemic as people sought out the relaxing effects of the trend.

Forget the roaring of the festive crowds – how about the comforting familiarity of popping popcorn and other audible sensations? The 90-minute film will be released in selected Cineworld cinemas on December 6th to help stressed-out shoppers find the relaxation they need.

ASMR screenings will be taking place at London (Leicester Square), Sheffield, Speke, Cardiff, Newcastle, Glasgow, Brighton, Birmingham Broad Street, York, Warrington, Leeds and Plymouth.
