Family movie day out for special needs kids

SPECIAL needs children have the opportunity to enjoy all the laughs of the hit film, 'Minions', in a relaxed environment at the upcoming Sensory Movie Day.

Event organiser Belinda Emery said the experience was like no other.

"The lighting is dimmed, the sound isn't too loud and children are free to move around and be themselves without any judgment," she said.

"Parents can relax as the door is manned to stop any escape artistes."

Ms Emery said the event was open to the whole family.

"For some families, this is usually the only time they can have an outing as a whole family," she said.

Sensory Movie Day will be held at Reading Cinemas on June 28 at 11am.

Tickets cost $8 and movie-goers will also have the option of a small drink and popcorn combo for an extra $6.

Ms Emery said 80 tickets need to be sold for the event to go ahead.

"If we don't get 80 prepaid tickets by Thursday, June 25, we will have to cancel," she said.

"The event is inclusive for all families with special needs. No diagnoses required and siblings and extended family are welcome."

If you would like to attend the event, contact Belinda Emery via the Sensory Movie Day Facebook page or email sensorymovieday.bundaberg@hotmail.com

The next event will be held on August 16, screening 'Inside Out'.
