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.

Movie Description: Based on the best-selling book series by Bernard Waber, Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile. When the Primm family (Wu, Scoot McNairy, Winslow Fegley) moves to New York City, their young son Josh struggles to adapt to his new school and new friends. All of that changes when he discovers Lyle- a singing crocodile (Mendes) who loves baths, caviar, and great music-living in the attic of his new home. The two become fast friends, but when Lyle's existence is threatened by evil neighbor Mr. Grumps (Brett Gelman), the Primms must band together with Lyle's charismatic owner, Hector P. Valenti (Bardem), to show the world that family can come from the most unexpected places and there's nothing wrong with a big singing crocodile with an even bigger personality.
