At Emagine Theatres, we strive to make moviegoing as accessible an experience as possible. Below you will find information on our special screening programs and the accessibility devices available at our theatres.
This sensory friendly special program makes going to the movies a more enjoyable and accessible experience for families, children, and teens on the autism and special needs spectrum.
What does Autism Friendly mean?
- First, it means sensory friendly (lights up a bit, sound down a bit).
- Second, if your child needs to get up, move, dance, sing….. no problem.
- Third, if your child has food allergies or is a picky eater you’re welcome to bring your own “safe” snack for them.
