The Theatre environment will be tailored to the attendees on the Autism Spectrum and their families.  This includes lower levels of sound and theater lights remain on, dietary sensitive offerings in the concession stand including gluten and dairy free options, trained staff and family restrooms.

“We reached out to local partner – Love, Andrew Autism Foundation – in 2017, to make sure we have addressed many of the issues that prevent families with children or adults on the Spectrum from attending movies. We are thankful for all the guidance and education they provided us,” said Georgia Paxos, Executive Director of the Canton Palace Theatre.   She continued, ”We look forward to this fifth annual season of Sensory Cinema and continuing to provide entertainment options in the future for all families in our area.”

Autism is the fastest growing and most severe developmental disability in the U.S. today, with the National Health Institute reporting prevalence in one in every 68 births nationwide. Programs, like Sensory Cinema, foster inclusion and acceptance for children with autism and their families.

The Canton Palace Theatre is currently seeking community sponsors for this movie series.  If you are interested in helping fund this program, please email today!
