What is a Sensory-Friendly Film?!

 Lowcountry Therapy Center is collaborating with the Cinemark Bluffton movie theater to create a sensory-friendly movie screening of Finding Dory.  You might be wondering…

What is a sensory-friendly film??

A sensory-friendly movie screening means:

  • the lights are dimmed, but not off,
  • the volume is turned down, and
  • children have the freedom to move around the theater.

This means that children with sound sensitivities are not overwhelmed by the volume of the movie, and that children that are fearful of the dark will be more comfortable.  Children that have difficulty sitting still and benefit from frequent breaks, or even movement while watching, are encouraged to give their bodies what they need!  This event provides an environment that is accepting of children with special needs, and a place where the child, their family, and their friends can enjoy time together.  Last, this is a great opportunity to network with other families!  Being able to relax and enjoy quality family time without worrying if someone will complain or be disturbed by noise or movement is a wonderful experience! 

This event will take place on Saturday, June 25th at 10:00am.  Tickets can be purchased at Lowcountry Therapy Center’s Bluffton or Port Royal locations.  The cost is $10 per person and includes a ticket voucher, popcorn, drink, and snack.  Cash or Check is accepted at this time only.  For questions, please call (843) 815-6999.
