The Promise Resource Center has partnered with R/C Theaters Lexington Exchange to provide Special Showings for Special Needs, bringing sensory-friendly movie showings to southern Maryland. Southern Maryland has a huge community of families with special needs children. Many of these families are unable to attend a movie because of sensory issues such as light and sound sensitivity, trouble sitting still or staying quiet. During these Special Showings, the sound will be turned down, the lights will be turned up, and parents or providers can bring their own snacks and drinks for children with dietary restrictions. Parents can relax and children can feel free to sing, cry, shout, or dance in a comfortable, judge-free zone!
The showings will occur at 10am on the 3rd Tuesday of the month, beginning July 19 with The Secret Life of Pets. Admission is a reduced rate of $6, and the concessions will be open. Visit thepromisecenter.org/specialshowings for the current showing schedule!
