Sensory Friendly Movies at Cinemagic Theaters

October 19, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

From The Cinemagic Theater website:
Sensory & Family friendly movies are for individuals living with autism and families with small children, to enjoy their movie going experience in a safe and accepting environment. In order to provide a more comfortable setting for individuals on the autism spectrum and those with young children, we keep the auditorium lights turned slightly up and the sound turned slightly down. The movie (typically G- or PG-rated) will start promptly at 10:00 a.m. Because some have strict, special dietary needs, families are permitted to bring their own gluten-free, casein-free snacks from home.

Additionally, audience members are welcome to get up and dance, walk, shout or sing – in other words, our no talking policy will not be enforced unless the audience safety is in question. This is especially nice for those with young children new to the movie-going experience. Being able to relax and enjoy your movie-going without worrying if someone will complain or be disturbed by noise or movement is wonderful. Sensory & Family Friendly movies are a great opportunity to enjoy a movie in a climate of acceptance and understanding.

September 28th: Abominable
October 19th: The Addams Family
November 23rd: Frozen2
