What is a Sensory Friendly Movie? Sensory friendly movies are designed to create an experience that is welcoming to all families and helps special needs children feel like themselves. It is a safe and friendly atmosphere created especially for kids with sensory input challenges. Often the lights are turned on and the sound is turned down, helping the children feel comfortable and at ease so they are better able to enjoy the show.
