Sensory Sessions at The Civic Prove Popular

26 Feb, 2017

Today, The Civic Gunnedah launched its Sensory Sessions with a screening of ‘Sing’.

Sensory Sessions feature soft sound and low light throughout movie screenings, free range seating, a quiet corner outside the movie theatre for anyone who needs a break, and an intermission for everyone to have a stretch and move around.

‘We’re really looking forward to providing an inclusive opportunity for people who may not usually feel comfortable attending a movie,’ Chris Frend, Tourism and Cultural Precinct Supervisor said.

‘We hope that by providing regular, ongoing screenings it will create an opportunity for families to have an outing together. The whole community is welcome to attend, and we anticipate many people will prefer the sensory friendly environment,’ he concluded.

Tickets prices are standard, with concessions available for students, seniors, DVA Gold Card and Companion Card holders. For more information please contact The Civic on 67402266, or to stay updated about available sessions go to or follow ‘The Civic, Gunnedah’ on Facebook.
