The Lamar Plaza Theater will kick off the Summer Vacation Movies Series starting next Wednesday. The theater offers free admission to the community at three show times each Wednesday.
This year, the theater is also offering sensory-sensitive showings, targeted at kids with sensor sensitivities or autism.
Those showings will be unique, with no previews, kid-friendly talking and standing and singing along with the movie, which is just fine with management.
"The volume will be lower, and the lights will be on higher in the theater to where it's not as dark so, from what I understand, other theaters are doing it and it's done very well for them," explained theater manager Scott Kelley.
The sensory-sensitive showings are set for 10:30 each Wednesday morning through the summer, with other show times being offered at 1:15 and 3:15 in the afternoon.
Again, admission to the movies is free.
The first movie is "Ice Age: Collision Course", which runs this coming Wednesday, May 24th.
