Sensory-Friendly Saturday at The Henry Ford’s Giant Screen Experience

July 10 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT


Join us on the second Saturday of each month at 11 AM at The Henry Ford’s Giant Screen Experience for a customized movie experience designed for those with Autism Spectrum Disorder/Sensory Processing Disorder and their loves ones. Each month we will feature a different film pulled from our regular schedule of high-quality educational documentaries for families.

On July 10th at 11 AM, the Giant Screen Experience will be showing “Hidden Pacific.” On the far reaches of the Pacific Ocean, blue-green islands, atolls, and corals reefs are thriving with a dizzying array of wildlife and tropical beauty, largely untouched by humans and currently protected as marine national monuments. Premiering on Earth Day (April 22) 2019, “Hidden Pacific” will bring to viewers never-before-seen footage of these remarkable places, sharing the splendor of such pristine environments and their important role in safeguarding our planet.

Your experience includes modifications to the traditional theater experience:

Lighting: The house lights stay on throughout the film

Sound: The sound is turned down for sensitive ears

Format: No 3D – all movies are played in regular format, eliminating concerns about 3D glasses

Length/Topic: 30- to 45-minute documentary films, appropriate and engaging for all ages

Environment: Stress-free and welcoming

Concessions: Available at the Giant Screen Experience Lobby

Sensory Friendly Saturdays at the Giant Screen Experience are free thanks to a generous grant from the Institute for Museum and Library Services, but ADVANCE REGISTRATION is required. Please register on the form below by noon on Friday, July 9th.
