Screen Sensory Friendly Films
This petition made change with 709 supporters!
I have approached Empire Theatres, Avalon Mall requesting that they have regular screenings of Sensory Friendly Films for our Autism Community here in St. John's and Mt. Pearl.
Often times our children are unable to enjoy a movie in the present format. It is unfortunate because going to a movie can be a great opportunity for family to get together and have a fun night out.
During a sensory friendly film, the lights are turned up, the sound is lowered, there are no previews, families can bring along special-diet foods and our children can talk and move around if need be.
Empire Theatres are very community oriented. The General Manager of Studio 12, who was very gracious in our communications, has informed me that they are looking at the request and will make a decision in the new year, 2013.
I don't need to tell you how this will help in our bid to make our community one step closer to inclusiveness and make our children feel accepted and welcomed. Please lend your support by signing this peition. We have a strong voice and numbers (1 in 93), so let's let Empire Theatres know that. Thanks for your time.
