Middletown's new 12-screen multiplex movie theater has announced it will soon begin hosting special showings for mothers with infants and children with autism and other sensory issues.
Westown Movies will host its first Mommies and Babies Movie Day on Saturday, Feb. 1 with daytime screenings of "Frozen," "Nut Job," "Ride Along" and "Lone Survivor," in which theater lights will be kept on to facilitate infant care and the volume will be lowered to prevent little ones from become startled. Nursing and bottle feeding also will be welcomed.
The theater also will hold a special 10 a.m. screening of "The Lego Movie," on Saturday, Feb. 8 during which the lights will be kept on and the volume turned down to provide a sensory-friendly movie experience co-sponsored by Autism Delaware.
