Centria Healthcare to Host Autism-Friendly Movie Screening of Peter Rabbit on Feb. 24

Local Families are Invited to Enjoy an Accommodating Movie Experience at Emagine Theatres!

This weekend, children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and their families are invited to attend an Autism-Friendly Movie screening of Peter Rabbit. This special screening will take place on Saturday, Feb. 24 at 10:30 a.m. at six participating Emagine Theatres locations: Birch Run, Canton, Macomb, Novi, Rochester Hills, and Saline. The event is hosted by Centria Healthcare, the nation’s leading provider of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy.

The goal of the Autism-Friendly Movie program, which came to fruition in 2017, is to provide a fun environment for families with ASD and other special needs to be able to enjoy the movie-going experience in a sensory-friendly environment. To accommodate audience members, the movie volume will be lowered, and the theater lights will be brighter than usual. Families with food allergies or food sensitivities will also be allowed to bring their own snacks from home.

"The Autism-Friendly Movie program is a great setting for children with autism, especially if they are working on certain social and behavioral skills. It gives them an opportunity to take what they have learned in their ABA therapy sessions and apply it to a real-world setting," said James Macon, MEd, BCBA at Centria Healthcare. "It's also a great chance for families to share a special experience together in a safe and judgment-free zone."

Representatives from Centria Healthcare will also be on-site at each of the six theaters to answer any questions that families may have about ASD, including screening, diagnosis, and therapy options.
