Geisinger Autism & Developmental Medicine Institute to host sensory-friendly movie Jan. 26
LEWISBURG, Pa. – Children with special developmental needs and their families are invited to a sensory-friendly showing of Abominable at Lewisburg’s Campus Theatre, 413 Market St., Lewisburg. The movie is part of Geisinger’s Autism & Developmental Medicine Institute’s (ADMI) sensory-friendly film series.
The showing of Abominable will take place at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 26. It is being sponsored by ADMI's SPARK study.
Loud music, vivid special effects, explosions, and fast scene changes of many of today’s films can be difficult for children with special needs, who can experience these effects as sensory overload.
This showing of Abominable, as part of the Sensory-Friendly Film Series, will:
- Provide a comfortable and accepting environment for those who want to get up, move around or make noise
- Feature family friendly movies in 2-D
- Begin on-time, with no previews or trailers
- Lower the volume of music and special effects
- Provide low-level lighting, instead of total darkness
- Allow families to bring or purchase snacks
Doors will open at 1:30 p.m. The movie will begin promptly at 2 p.m. Admission is free. Donations are accepted to fund future screenings.
