Vox Cinemas in Dubai (as well as other locations) is now offering Sensory Friendly showings of family movies! Sensory Friendly showings offer:
- Increased auditorium lighting (lighting is a bit lighter than usual)
- Lower volume (sound is lower)
- Smaller crowd
- Parents can bring in their own snacks
“VOX Cinemas in partnership with Dubai Autism Center has introduced Sensory Friendly Screenings which feature certain adjustments to make the cinema more inclusive and accessible for children with sensory sensitivities. While the typical cinema environment can be stressful for guests with sensory sensitivities, the Sensory Friendly Screenings provide a safe and comfortable environment including keeping the house lights on (dimmed) throughout the film, lowering the audio volume, removing the advertisements and trailers before the film and a reduced number of guests in the auditorium. Families will also be allowed to bring their own food if they have any special dietary needs.”
Tickets for Sensory Friendly Screenings can be booked on the VOX Cinemas website, app or at the ticket counter at any VOX Cinemas.
