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

June 12, 2021 @ 11:00 am July 12, 2021 @ 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 June 12th at 11:00am, the Giant Screen Experience will be showing Back from the Brink – a giant-screen adventure about the true story of three animal species that were rescued from extinction. During this film, you will meet scientists, park rangers and students working hard to save endangered animals around the world. Watch this heartfelt adventure to show that positive change is possible. 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 Second Saturdays are free thanks to a generous grant from the Institute for Museum and Library Services, but ADVANCE REGISTRATION is required.
