“Sensory Friendly Films” program. Saturday, January 17th-Paddington

Sensory Friendly Film showing:  1/17/15  11:00 AM


The Galleria 14 in Beckley and “Down with That” – The Down Syndrome Family Support Group of Southern West Virginia invite  families affected by Down Syndrome, Autism, and other disabilities to enjoy the  film Paddington  in a safe and accepting environment with the “Sensory Friendly Films” program.  Saturday,  January 17th  at 11:00 AM . Matinee pricing applies. Headphones and apparatus accommodations available upon request.


In order to provide a more accepting and comfortable setting for this unique audience, the movie auditoriums will have their lights brought up and the sound turned down, families will be able to bring in their own gluten-free, casein-free snacks, and no previews or advertisements will be shown before the movie. Additionally, audience members are welcome to get up and dance, walk, shout or sing along- unless the safety of the audience is questioned.

Everyone in attendance will also be entered into a drawing for a wonderful gift basket courtesy of the pottery place!
