Friends of PFPL, in partnership with Family Support Organization, proudly presents a “Sensory Friendly Movie” on Tuesday, Jul 18 at 6:00PM. Sensory Friendly Movies are special opportunities for families living with autism and others to enjoy movies in a safe and accepting environment.

The lights will be left on and the sound turned slightly down in order to provide a more accepting and comfortable setting for individuals on the autism spectrum. Families are encouraged to bring their own gluten-free, casein-free snacks from home as well as blankets, pillows, stuffed animals and other soft, quiet toys.

Audience members are welcome to get up and dance, walk, shout or even sing! – quiet policy will not be enforced unless the safety of the audience is in question. Being able to relax and enjoy quality family time without worrying if someone will complain or be disturbed by noise or movement is a wonderful experience.

Many others, not on the autism spectrum, can also enjoy Sensory Friendly Movies – it is a great opportunity for families to meet, siblings of children with autism to get to know other kids, and anyone to enjoy a movie in a climate of acceptance and understanding. Registration is required and seating is limited.

RSVP to: aruiz@fso-hsw.org or for questions call (908) 223.1191. Sign up at the Library or call (908) 454-3712. Visit us at www.FPFPL.org. 

Partial funding is provided by the Warren County Cultural and Heritage Commission. Movie License # 196808001,

Sponsored by the Friends of PFPL, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization of volunteers and advocates that supports the Library’s mission to inspire lifelong learning, advance knowledge, and strengthen our community.
