In support of World Autism Awareness Month, Megaplex Theatres is offering Sensory Friendly auditoriums at All participating locations for the 2016 Megaplex Kids Summer Movies program from Logan to Mesquite.
Sensory Friendly Movies provide an atmosphere in the auditorium that is more welcoming and less stressful for families with children on the Autism spectrum or other special needs. The volume of the film is lower and the auditorium lights are left brighter than in a regular screening. Guests who need to stand, move, or make noise during the movie are welcome to do so without worrying about disrupting others.
While recording is still prohibited inside the auditorium, guests who need them are welcome to keep their electronic devices turned on.
“Since we first opened, Megaplex Theatres has hosted a variety of individual screenings and events for those with special needs; however, this is the first time we have dedicated a second auditorium across all of our participating locations for the full ten week run of the Kids Summer Movies,” said Blake Andersen, president of Megaplex Theatres. “Our goal is to follow the vision of Larry H. Miller and the Miller family and provide all of our guests with the best experience possible.” ~
