Come join us for the Sensory Friendly program at Emagine. This sensory friendly special program makes going to the movies a more enjoyable and accessible experience for those with sensory needs. What does this mean? First, it means sensory friendly (lights up a bit, sound down a bit). Second, audience interaction (movement, speaking, singing) and electronic device (phone, tablet, etc.) usage are allowed. Third, guests are welcome to bring a safe snack for any food allergies or food avoidance/restrictions.
