Film to accommodate children with special needs
Feb. 10, 2015
LEWISBURG, Pa. – As part of Geisinger’s Autism & Developmental Medicine Institute’s (ADMI) Community Outreach and Family Support initiative, ADMI and The Campus Theatre continue to offer children with special developmental needs and their families a chance to experience the joy of seeing movies on the big screen.
The Sensory Friendly Film Series will continue on Sunday, Feb. 15, with the computer-animated “The LEGO Movie” at the Campus Theatre, 413 Market Street, Lewisburg. Doors open at 1:30 p.m. with the movie beginning at 2 p.m.
“Most filmgoers can attest to the sensory assault of many of today’s films – loud music, vivid special effects, explosions, fast scene changes, and multiple dimensions,” said Megan Epler community liaison, Geisinger ADMI. “Imagine, then, the impact on a child with special needs who may be eager to experience the joy of seeing a movie on the big screen, but is unable to withstand the sensory overload. That’s why we continue to offer this film series.”
There is no charge to attend films in this series. Donations will be accepted by the theatre to fund future screenings. Those wishing to attend must RSVP by calling 570-522-6281 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
