What does "Sensory-Friendly" mean?
We keep the lights up, turn the sound down, and avoid 3D. It is a show where people with sensory disorders can jump, shout, and move about, without fear of judgement.

Why "Sensory-Friendly" shows?
People with sensory disorders, like Autism, Asperger's Syndrome, etc, are often extra sensitive to drastic changes in light and loud sounds. These kinds of disturbances can set off outbursts and episodes, so people with sensory disorders (and their families) don't often get a chance to go out to the movies for fear of disturbing other guests in the theater and being judged for such disturbances. These Sensory-Friendly shows are an opportunity for those guests and their families to get the movie theater experience that's been so elusive for so long, with the added bonus of the dining option available at all Cinema Cafe locations

When are these shows available?
Sensory-Friendly Shows occur as Cinema Cafe has family-friendly movies to offer. We encourage you to check this page monthly for possible schedules. Sensory-Friendly show announcements will also be posted on the Cinema Cafe Facebook page and Twitter.
