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

August 21 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT


Join us each month 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 Saturday, August 21st at 11 AM, the Giant Screen Experience will be showing “Planet Power.” “Planet Power” showcases the history of electricity and features scientists who changed the world like Benjamin Franklin and Nikola Tesla. Get a glimpse of how we are facing the growing amount of energy our world needs and clean energy solutions of the future.

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, August 20th.
