AmStar Cinemas, Navicent Health to Host Sensory Friendly Screening for Kids with ASD

Screening of Smallfoot Scheduled for Saturday, September 29

In an effort to support central Georgia families living with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and related developmental disorders, AmStar Cinemas and Autism & Developmental Center, Navicent Health have partnered to host an event for children with ASD and related developmental disorders.

A sensory-friendly version of Smallfoot (PG) will be shown for children with ASD and related developmental disorders at AmStar Cinemas (5996 Zebulon Road, Macon) on Saturday, September 29 at 11:00 a.m. The movie will be screened at a softer volume with lights up. Those in the audience are welcome to dance, sing, express themselves and move about during the movie. Tickets may be purchased at the theater box office.

ASD is a developmental disability that can cause social, communication and behavioral challenges. According to estimates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 1 in 59 children in the U.S. have been identified with ASD, a disorder that affects all racial, ethnic and socioeconomic groups, and 1 in 6 have been identified with a developmental disorder or delay.
