Experience the vast African terrain in Wild Africa, with the first sensory-friendly film experience in the Quad Cities!

What is sensory-friendly? It’s a movie modified to be “friendlier” to the senses.

Changes to the environment and film experience include: dimmed but not turned off theater lights, lower volume, all movies in 2D, little to no trailers before the movie and handicapped access to theater.

Guests of all ages have the freedom to move around and make noise during the show, as well as bring in outside food and drink to suit their dietary needs!

A designated “chill out zone” is available outside of the theater featuring therapy dogs from the Quad Cities Canine Assistance Network to provide comfort for those attending.

ALL ticket prices will be $5 per person. Tickets are available at http://putnam.org/Movies/Featured/Sensory-Friendly-Films. Use discount code ASQC at checkout to receive the $5 price.

Sensory-friendly screenings of documentaries on the GIANT Screen Theater are offered every second Sunday of the month, starting with the first on March 11 and continuing with an April 8 showing of Dream Big and a finale film on May 13.

Sensory friendly films at the Putnam are proudly sponsored by the Autism Society of the Quad Cities.
