SENSORY SENSITIVE SCREENING FAQs

What does sensory sensitive mean?

We understand and respect that for some people, going to the movies may be a challenge or nearly impossible. The darkness of the auditorium, the loud volume, the need to stay seated and the different immersive formats offered can be overwhelming for guests with sensory sensitivities. To make sure that all of our guests have the opportunity to enjoy the experience of seeing a movie in the cinema with their friends and family, Showcase Cinemas offers monthly screenings at select locations that are designed to accommodate guests who may require a different environment.



How will this screening be different than a regular movie screening?

We want our guests to sit back, relax and enjoy the latest movies in a comfortable setting that meets their needs. The volume will be lowered, the lights will be kept on a dim setting throughout the movie, and there will not be any trailers prior to the start of the show. Guests may get up, move around, and talk during the movie, as well as clap, dance and sing – whatever they need to do to feel comfortable and enjoy the movie-going experience. Fidgets and other sensory-friendly comfort items are also permitted for these screenings.



How often will you have sensory sensitive screenings?

Participating theatres will host a sensory sensitive screening the first Saturday of each month at 10 a.m. Please view showcasecinemas.com/sensorysensitive for the movie schedule, participating locations, and other details about the program.



Who can attend a sensory sensitive screening?

These screenings are designed for guests of any age who experience sensory processing issues, as well as their families and friends. The screenings are open to the public, but guests not in need of a sensory-friendly environment should be aware of the accommodations made during these movie presentations. 



How do I purchase a ticket to a sensory sensitive screening?

Please visit the box office at your participating Showcase Cinemas location to purchase your tickets.
