Sensory Movie Day – The Grinch 9th December

December 9 @ 10:30 am - 1:00 pm

The Grinch and his loyal dog, Max, live a solitary existence inside a cave on Mount Crumpet. His main source of aggravation comes during Christmastime when his neighbours in Whoville celebrate the holidays with a bang. When the Whos decide to make Christmas bigger and brighter, the disgruntled Grinch realises there is one way to gain peace and quiet. With help from Max, the green grump hatches a scheme to pose as Santa Claus, steal Christmas and silence the Whos’ holiday cheer once and for all.

Sensory Movie Day is for families with Special Needs. We want families to feel welcome while their children are free to roam around the cinema, stim and be themselves.

This is a non-judgmental session and no need for families to feel uncomfortable. We have the lights left on dim and the volume is adjusted slightly.

Tickets are available to purchase from the cinema and also available online at the following linkĀ https://www.eventcinemas.com.au/EventsFestivals/SensoryFriendlyScreenings#cinemas

Tickets are $6 each. (Please note when purchasing online there is a booking fee)

Children 2 years and under are free.

Companion Cards are accepted.

Event Cinemas are proud to bring sensory friendly films to families living with autism and other sensory needs at select locations.

Held monthly on a Sunday, sensory friendly screenings allow families to enjoy their favourite films in a safe and accepting environment where kids are free to get up, move around, shout or sing.
