SURVEY: Sensory Movies for Adults with Disabilities

Special Events

A few years ago the Southeastern Ohio Center for Independent Living (SOCIL) worked with Cinemark Theater in Lancaster to arrange sensory friendly movies for children. Cinemark has been hosting these once a month. SOCIL and the Fairfield County Board of Developmental Disabilities have been approached about the possibility of having similar showings for adults. Preliminary discussions have addressed that these movies would have lights up, the sound down, low crowds, and could possibly target audiences with epilepsy and post-traumatic stress disorder among other disabilities. This survey is to gather information as to the community interest in these movies. We want to show that there is an interest in such movies before we approach Cinemark so Cinemark can see it would be worth their time and energy to host such an event and do so on an ongoing basis. Thank you for your time. This is the link for then survey: www.surveymonkey.com/r/MXHF53X
