If you have a child with autism or other special needs, you know how difficult it can be to do some of the simple things others take for granted. Emagine Entertainment has invited families to take advantage of a special “sensory-friendly” screening of the popular movie “Spies in Disguise” released during the recent holiday season.

This Saturday, January 11th, 2020 at 10:30 am the animated feature film will be presented with specific modifications made to ensure an enjoyable experience for individuals on the autism and special needs spectrum and their supporters. Emagine Entertainment understands that movies should be as accessible as possible for everyone and this sensory-friendly special program makes going to the movies a more enjoyable experience for families, children, and teens that can benefit from the format.

What does Sensory Friendly mean? First, it’s the movie experience with lights up a bit, and sound down a bit. Note: there are no modifications made to the film. Second, if your child needs to get up, move, dance, or sing during the screening. No problem. Third, guests are welcome to bring a safe snack for any food allergies or food avoidance/restrictions.

This movie is open to friends, families, children, and teens on the autism and special needs spectrum and their supporters.

Spies in Disguise Synopsis

Super spy Lance Sterling (Will Smith) and scientist Walter Beckett (Tom Holland) are almost exact opposites. Lance is smooth, suave and debonair. Walter is… not. But what Walter lacks in social skills he makes up for in smarts and invention, creating the awesome gadgets Lance uses on his epic missions. But when events take an unexpected turn, Walter and Lance suddenly have to rely on each other in a whole new way. And if this odd couple can’t learn to work as a team, the whole world is in peril. Spies in Disguise is an animated comedy set in the high-octane globe-trotting world of international espionage.
