On Saturday, Jan. 25 at 1 p.m., Empowering Kids will host a sensory friendly movie at the Comet Theater in Perham. Doolittle will play with a few adaptations geared toward those with sensory challenges. The volume will be turned down and the lights will be a little brighter. Most importantly, there is a “no hush” policy. We don’t encourage talking, but we understand that there may be questions throughout the film. The cost is $6/person and is open to individuals and families. Noise reducing headphones, weighted blankets, and fidgets will be available to check out.
The mission of Empowering Kids is to empower children, families, and the community by providing support and resources to those with autism or social challenges.
