Many parents take the experience of taking their kids to see a movie they’ll love like The Croods at the local theater for granted. For parents of children who experience sensory difficulties such as those brought on by autism or Aspergers syndrome, a trip to the movie theater is usually impossible.
However, Showtime Cinema in Mooresville is holding a special event to accommodate children with these sensory difficulties. They are calling the special event Sullie’s Day at the Movies, and it is taking place at 12:25 p.m. on Saturday, April 20 and Sunday, April 21. Showtime Cinema will be showing The Croods, but will be leaving the lights at a dimmed level and turning the volume down.
While the movie is being catered toward children with sensory difficulties, anyone is welcome to attend the event. If you were considering seeing The Croods (or loved it enough that you want to see it again), we encourage you to attend this weekend. If at least 30 people attend, the theater will make this experience a monthly deal.
If you can’t attend The Croods, even just sharing this information on your Facebook page to help spread the word would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, and we hope all attendees enjoy the film this weekend.
