SENSORY screenings for families with special needs will now be held at Event Cinemas Whitford.

The screenings for families living with autism and other sensory needs allow everyone to enjoy films in a safe and accepting environment where kids are free to get up, move around, shout or sing.

The theatre also modifies its lighting and sounds, dimming the lights and lowering the volume for sensitive ears.

Sessions are already held monthly on Sundays at Event Cinemas Innaloo and Greater Union Morley.

Whitford will hold its first session on May 20 with Peter Rabbit, with Sherlock Gnomes on June 17 and Early Man on July 29.

Tickets are $6 plus booking fees at bit.ly/2GxlB03.
