Sensory Friendly Screenings Every Month at Paragon City Center

Posted on August 11, 2016 at 8:10 AM by Communications Department

Sensory friendly movie screenings are making life a little more enjoyable for children with autism (or other special needs) and their families. This different kind of movie experience is now an option for families in Newport News. With lights on and low sound, Paragon City Center 12 offers monthly sensory friendly screenings that are perfect for children who may be sensitive to typical movie sound levels or just aren't ready to sit for an entire movie.
Paragon City Center 12 offers these screenings as part of their commitment to community service. By making these sensory friendly screenings available, all families have access to the Paragon 12 experience that Newport News residents have embraced.

The next two sensory friendly screenings are:
Saturday, August 13 - 10 AM – Pete's Dragon
Saturday, September 10th - 10 AM – The Wild Life (Robinson Crusoe)

Guests can check to keep up to date on upcoming sensory friendly screenings and other promotions or contact with any questions.
