Verbatim: Sensory-sensitive film coming to Fort Wayne

Statement issued Friday:

FORT WAYNE - Going to see a movie with a person affected by autism or some other disability can be difficult due to different sensory triggers. From the dark theatre to the loud and booming sound systems, a movie can quickly become overwhelming. Easter Seals Arc in cooperation with Regal Cinemas is addressing this issue by bringing sensory sensitive films to a theatre near you.

There are very few opportunities in Indiana, and even fewer in Fort Wayne, for families and people of all abilities to enjoy their favorite films and experience that movie theatre ambience, without experiencing sensory overload. In order to provide a more comfortable setting for this unique audience, Regal Cinemas at Coldwater Crossing will turn the lights up, and the sound down, and guests are free to get up, dance, walk shout, and whatever else feels right. In addition, outside food is permitted and the concession stands will be open as well.

Join us on Saturday, March 5th at 10a.m. at Coldwater Crossing, 211 W Washington Center Road, for Rango (rated pg), starring Johnny Depp, about a chameleon with an identity crisis. The cost is $7.
