Participating Event and BCC Cinemas are proud to be screening JUMANJI: WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE on April 22, as part of Autism Queensland’s annual Go Blue for Autism campaign.
April 2, World Autism Awareness Day, marks the start of Autism Queensland’s annual Go Blue for Autism campaign. Organisations are asked to Go Blue from April 2 to help raise awareness and funds to support individuals living with ASD and their families.
This sensory-friendly screening of JUMANJI: WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE will allow families to enjoy a fantastic family film in a safe and accepting environment where kids are free to get up and move around, shout or sing. The cinema lights will be dimmed so you can see what is going on and the movie volume lowered for sensitive ears.
The screening is run with the assistance of Autism Queensland, a not-for-profit organisation with a vision for a life of participation, opportunity and choice for people with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
Autism Queensland Chief Executive Officer Rod Cameron said the organisation was delighted to be teaming up with Event Cinemas to bring a sensory-friendly screening to families living with Autism and other sensory needs.
“We congratulate and sincerely thank Event Cinemas for their involvement in the Go Blue for Autism campaign,” said Mr Cameron.
“These special events help increase understanding of autism and create a more inclusive community. We encourage families to take advantage of this opportunity if they live near one of the participating theatres.”
Collection tins will be located at each cinema, where patrons will be able to donate to the Go Blue for Autism campaign.
All tickets are $6* (plus online booking fee). To book tickets visit eventcinemas.com.au or your local participating cinema.
