Museum of Discovery and Science Launches Sensory-Friendly Screenings

In an effort to provide an inclusive experience for all, on December 15, 2018, the Museum of Discovery and Science launched its new Sensory-Friendly Screenings at the AutoNation IMAX Theater, in Fort Lauderdale.
To provide a more sensory-sensitive environment for individuals on the autism spectrum, the museum raises the lights, lowers the sound and shows the films in 2D. Audience members are welcome to get up, sing, dance and shout. This program is endorsed by the Autism Society of Florida.

For families that have children with autism, a day at the movies can be a difficult ordeal. The museum recognizes the need to offer sensory-friendly viewings and is excited to provide this all-inclusive movie-going experience. Upcoming sensory-friendly screenings include Dream Big, on January 19 and Great Bear Rainforest, on February 16.
Those with special dietary needs are permitted to bring their own gluten-free snacks from home along with blankets or other small items that make them comfortable.
Sensory-friendly screenings take place at 10 a.m., on the third Saturday of the month and are open to the public.
Location: 401 SW Second St., Fort Lauderdale. For information and tickets, call 954-713-0930, e-mail [email protected] or visit mods.org/imax/sensoryfriendly/.
