Movies for special needs kids
- Madras Pioneer - Features
ras Cinema 5 will be offering periodic "Sensory Saturday" events for children and adults with special needs.
The theater will open early, before it opens to the general public, during these showings.
The auditorium will have the lights darkened only half way and the sound will be reduced.
Audience members will be free to get up and dance, sing or clap along if they want to. The cost is $6 per person.
Summer Sensory Saturdays are scheduled for June 25, July 16 and Aug. 13. Doors open at 9:30 a.m., and the movie starts at 10 a.m.
Discounted concessions will be available, and guests with food allergies may bring their own special snacks. KFC and A&W restaurants are sponsors of the first Sensory Saturday.
