The Erie County Board Of Developmental Disabilities Partners With Local Cinemark To Host Sensory-Friendly Movie


SANDUSKY, OHIO, March 11, 2023: The Erie County Board of Developmental Disabilities partnered with Cinemark Theater in Sandusky to coordinate an opportunity for those with sensory challenges to see a movie in a way that is comfortable and enjoyable to them. In the spirit of Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month, a sensory-friendly movie screening of The Amazing Maurice will be held at the Cinemark Theater. The lights in the theater remain on and the volume is turned down to avoid overwhelming those with sensory challenges. The Erie County Board of DD will provide fidget toys to allow people that require more sensory input to move and play while they watch. This March, keep those with developmental disabilities in mind as local businesses and individuals begin to plan more events so they can be enjoyed by all.


Doors open at 10 AM, movie starts at 10:30 AM on Saturday, March 11. To reserve your tickets, please call 419-626-0208. Seats will be limited to accommodate a sensory-friendly experience, so reserve your spots while space is available.


The mission of the Erie County Board of Developmental Disabilities is to inspire, empower and support individuals and their families.
