A trip to the movies is exciting for most children. But there are some that view theaters as scary rather than fun. So now, a movie theater chain is stepping in to make the experience more inclusive.
Paragon Theaters has designed screenings for those with sensory processing disorders, autism, or other special needs by creating a safe and welcoming environment.
“We feel these screenings are important as they provide children with sensory issues the ability to enjoy an outing at the movies with their friends and family in an environment that is comfortable for them,” said Sandy Pascual, vice president of marketing and PR.
On Saturday, March 14, 2020, at 10;00 a.m. they will hold a screening of Onward where the light’s on, and the sound turned down. Children are also free to move around the auditorium during the movie.
Disney-Pixar’s Onward is set in a suburban fantasy world and introduces two teenage elf brothers who embark on an extraordinary quest to discover if there is still a little magic left out there.
These showings sell out fast as they are very popular with moviegoers. Tickets can be purchased in advance via Paragon’s website at paragontheaters.com or via their mobile app.
Paragon Theaters is located at The Plaza at Coral Springs II at 770 Riverside Dr, Coral Springs, FL 33071.
