Wehrenberg Theatres is hosting a sensory friendly movie, monthly, for anyone who might be overstimulated attending a typical movie experience. The show will run with brighter auditorium lights and lower sound. If a higher volume is needed, feel free to ask for a headset at the Guest Services Desk, where they can amplify the dialog from the show. Wehrenberg will also have available Closed Captioned devices for those that would like to read the words from the movie.
With Starplex no longer offering this sensory friendly movie option, Wehrenberg is stepping in to fill the void. Attendance will dictate whether this will continue beyond August.
Special screenings will happen the 2nd Saturday of each month.
The most recent statistic from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention states that 1 in 45 children have autism. That staggering statistic emphasizes how important it is that the central Illinois community becomes aware of the difficulties of living with autism. Autism McLean provides imperative programming to people of all ages living with autism and families whose lives are affected by autism.
April is Autism Awareness Month and Autism McLean has planned a month packed full of events to raise awareness about autism. Also, look for our Autism Awareness electronic billboards on Veterans Parkway!
Autism McLean is an all volunteer based group that strives to educate the central Illinois area about autism and fund programs that better the lives of individuals and families of those with autism. For more information, contact email@example.com.
Please view the benefits of being a member and consider joining us. Events like movies and Children’s Discovery Museum are often free for our members.
