Movie screening will be sensory-friendly



VANCOUVER — “Cars 2” will be shown at 9 a.m. July 9 at the Vancouver Regal Cascade 16 Cinema. It won’t be just a normal showing though; it will be a sensory-friendly movie.

This movie is designed to cater to people who have sensory-processing problems as well as those with verified mental disorders such as epilepsy or autism. Sensory-friendly movies are presented with dimmed lights rather than no lights, doors open 30 minutes early, the sound is turned down and getting up out of your seat is acceptable.

Also, gluten-free and gluten-free, casein-free snacks are allowed in the theater.

Regal Cinemas is trying out these “My Way Matinee” days around the country. This will be the second one the company will host after the first, “Gnomeo and Juliet,” brought in more than 200 guests.
