Cineplex to offer more “sensory friendly” movies

April is Autism Awareness Month in Canada… and one group supporting people and families coping with the condition says it’s hoping a simple, but innovative, idea will soon be coming to the Island.

Cineplex recently launched “Sensory Friendly Screenings” at some theatres in Canada… including the Lower Mainland..

Janet Anderson of Autism Speaks Canada says it’s proving a success.
