Last week Cineplex announced that in partnership with Autism Speaks Canada, they will have special screenings of movies for people with Autism Spectrum Disorder that will be "Sensory Friendly". This is great news for families with autistic children and adults giving them a chance to get out and enjoy a movie as a family. 

We are lucky here in the lower mainland, because our very own Cineplex Cinemas in Langley (formerly known as Colossus Langley) will have screenings and so far they are the only theatre providing this in BC. They will offer movies in 2D projection, with increased lighting, lower volume and smaller crowds. Families will also be able to bring in outside food for those with dietary needs. 

Ticket prices will be the same for everyone attending at children's prices. Movies will be shown in select theatres every 4-6 weeks and 
played on Saturday mornings at 10:30am before the Theatre opens to the general public.  Movies will not be available every Satruday morning so check out their website regularly for a schedule of the special screenings. The next movie to be offered is the new "Cinderella" movie being offered on Saturday April 4, 2015 at 10:30am. Not sure if it will be available at the Langley location...be sure to check out Cineplex closer to the dates, as the tickets go on sale the Tuesday before each showing.
