Starplex Cinemas Presents Movies for Children With Special Needs

The Starplex hosts a sensory friendly movie monthly for children who might be overstimulated attending a typical movie experience. Starplex turns the lights up and the sound down so the movie is more enjoyable for children that can not handle or do not enjoy all that stimulation. Children are free to walk around and vocalize during the movie.

Special screenings will happen the 2nd Saturday of each month.

One free child admission with adult ticket purchase. Seating is limited - first come, first serve.

Please check out the Starplex site for more information.

Starplex Cinemas, 201 McKnight St, Normal, IL 61761

  • All unsold donated items will be given to the Mission Mart, Home Sweet Home, ReStore, etc.

Here’s how you can help:

  • Donate garage-sale worthy items for the garage sale. If you’re interested in donating in advance of the garage sale please contact Craig Luchtefeld, at c.luchtefeld@autismmclean.org or 309-319-6006. The more items donated, the more money we can raise, and the more kids we can send to camp!

    • Monday, March 31st from 5:00p – 7:00p
    • Wednesday, April 2nd from 5:00p – 7:00p

  • If you have items you’d like to donate but cannot make one of the early drop-off dates, please contact Craig Luchtefeld at c.luchtefeld@autismmclean.org or 309-319-6006 and we’ll work out a time to retrieve your items.
  • If you’d like to volunteer to help unload or sort items at any one of the early drop-off times, we’d very much appreciate the help! You can register to volunteer here: http://doodle.com/hemwtziybp5rw9kd.
