Name: Sensory-Friendly Movie at the Putnam
Grade Level: All DATE: Sunday, October 14, 2018
Description: The Putnam Museum is hosting another sensory-friendly film experience! “National Parks Adventure” will premiere in its sensory-friendly version on the Putnam GIANT Screen Theater on Sunday, October 14 at 2:00 p.m. The film will be modified to be “friendlier” to the senses. Changes to the environment and film experience include: theater lights dimmed but not turned off, volume turned down, all movies in 2D and few to no trailers before the film. The GIANT Screen Theater is fully accessible.
Patrons can move around and make noise during the show as well as bring in outside food and drink to suit their dietary needs. A designated “chill out zone” is available outside of the theater, providing additional comfort for all guests.
