Sensory friendly movies are movies that are shown in a “sensory friendly” environment that allow children with ASD, Autism Spectrum Disorder or any other child who enjoys getting-up, moving or talking during the movie to be allowed to do so. Many parents feel they can not attend a movie with their child because they may disrupt the other viewers. At a sensory friendly movie childrens’ needs are understood and parents do not need to worry.
Century Gateway 12 will be showing two movies in July that will play in a “sensory friendly” environment open to all families and children with or without a disability. There will be a showing Saturday, July 15 at 10:05 a.m. of Boss Baby and Wednesday July 19 at 10:05 a.m. of Beauty and the Beast. This is the first time that Century Gateway 12 has sponsored “sensory friendly” showings. One of Jenny’s own parents was instrumental in encouraging Century Gateway 12 to offer this opportunity. We hope they continue to offer these showings in the future.
All Children and families are welcome to attend. Century Gateway 12 is located at 770 N Kolbe, Tucson, AZ 85710. If you have questions you can reach them at 520-886-1000.
