Spectrum Friendly Screening of “The Grinch”

December 8

Marquee Cinemas | 220 9th St | Pullman Square

9:00am - 10:30am

With those special sensory needs in mind, the West Virginia Autism Training Center, Marquee Cinemas and the Huntington Regional Chamber of Commerce have organized a special, spectrum-friendly screening of this year’s animated movie “The Grinch” on Saturday, Dec. 8, at Pullman Square in downtown Huntington.

The showing will take into consideration the many, varied needs of those living with autism spectrum disorder — details the average, unfamiliar person would take for granted. The lights inside the theater will be turned up slightly, and the volume will be softened a bit. Guests will be free to get up and move inside the theater should they feel the need, and outside snacks for those with special diets will be allowed in.
Registration is suggested, but not required, to give the theater an approximation of how many will be in attendance.

Doors open at 9 a.m. Saturday and the film will start promptly at 10 a.m. with no previews – another consideration aimed at minimizing waiting, Ellison said.

Tickets are $6 per person and may be purchased at the door or in advance at three locations: the Autism Training Center main office at 316 Old Main on Marshall’s Huntington campus, or at the two Diversified Assessment & Therapy Services offices located at 1404 Popular St. in Kenova, or 33 Urskine Lane, Suite B in Scott Depot. Tickets must be purchased with cash.
