Sensory Movie Day Events Calendar

Sensory movies days have been up and running for some time now. The initiative was developed to provide the opportunity for children and adults with special needs to experience the movies in a safe, non-judgemental environment. Lighting is on dim (not dark), sound is lowered and participants are free to move around – to try every seat in the cinema if they wish, fire exit doors are monitored.

Sensory movie days now run out of ten locations:

  • Morayfield Birch Carroll & Coyle,
  • Maroochydore Sunshine Plaza Birch Carroll & Coyle
  • Bundaberg Reading Cinema (starts at 1.30pm)
