The next Civic Cinema Sensory Sessions will take place at 5.00pm Friday 21 July 2017 with the family movie ‘Cars 3.’ The Civic has partnered with GoCo and Connections 4 Kids to create a safe, accepting environment for children and young adults with diverse sensory needs.
Sensory Sessions feature soft sound and low light throughout the movie, free range seating, a quiet corner outside the movie theatre for anyone who needs a break, and an intermission for everyone to have a stretch and move around.
‘We’re really looking forward to providing an inclusive opportunity for people who may not usually feel comfortable attending a movie,’ Chris Frend, Tourism and Cultural Precinct Supervisor said.
‘We hope that by providing regular, ongoing screenings it will create an opportunity for families to have an outing together. The whole community is welcome to attend, and we anticipate many people will prefer the sensory friendly environment,’ he concluded.
Tickets prices are standard, with concessions available for students, seniors, DVA Gold Card and Companion Card holders. For more information please contact The Civic on 67402266, or to stay updated about available sessions go to www.thecivic.com.au or follow ‘The Civic, Gunnedah’ on Facebook.
