Autism Friendly Films at Emagine Theatres Added to Advanced Search

Posted on Wednesday, February 27th, 2019 12:16 PM

Last April, we added an Advanced Search tool to help our readers find presentations that were friendly to those with autism and other special needs. That tool is called Search for Sensory-Friendly Presentations

Different movie theaters call these shows by different names, but as we find them, we add them to the search parameters so that you can find them easily.

Our most recent addition is Emagine Entertainment, which has 20 locations in Illinois, Michigan, Minnesota, and Wisconsin. They call their presentations "Autism Friendly Films," which they describe on their web site as follows:

What does Autism Friendly mean?

  1. First, it means sensory friendly (lights up a bit, sound down a bit).
  2. Second, if your child needs to get up, move, dance, sing….. no problem.
  3. Third, if your child has food allergies or is a picky eater you’re welcome to bring your own “safe” snack for them.

These presentations currently show at several of their locations:

As we continue to find more such presentations, we'll add them to the Advanced Search tool!
