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.

January 12 - Monsters, Inc.
February 9 - The Little Mermaid
March 9 - Toy Story

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

Please check out the Starplex site for more information.

Date/Time: 
Saturday, January 12, 2013 - 10:00am

About the program:

This camp is open to any kid who wants to be there. As long as they want to play, they are welcome to join us.

Our mission statement is simple: provide our kids the same experience as any other kid who plays a sport. This means, of course, uniforms, practice, frustration, achievement, daydreaming, running, sharing, communicating, bonding, teamwork, turn taking, following directions and friendship.

Parents can help coach (which really means play and share the experience)

We look forward to seeing you there, and watching our kids succeed!
