What a great idea. *I* think movies are wayyyyy too loud. I can only imagine how a sensory sensitive child would be overhwhelmed by it. I just wish it wasn't so early on Sat morning. We have things to do this weekend anyway so we can't come.

The Autism Alliance of Metrowest coordinates all the sensory friendly films in Framingham. They are always early because it is meant to mimic kids on the spectrum routines. It's great. Not only is it not as loud but the light are dimmed slightly. And my favorite part is if my son makes noise when he stims it's no big deal.
