Where "Shhhhh!" isn't allowed!
Family Hope Foundation and Celebration! Cinema present a unique movie experience for individuals with special needs and their families.
Enjoy a disability-friendly environment where everyone is welcome to be who they are!
Spring 2015 Update:
Celebration! Cinema is expanding our 'Sensory Screenings' to five more theatres so many more families can enjoy time out of the house together! We couldn't be happier that our wonderful partner values this program and is compelled to support special families across West Michigan! Theatres now participating are:
- Celebration! Cinema North in Grand Rapids
- Celebration! Cinema South in Grand Rapids
- Celebration! Cinema Crossroads in Portage
- Celebration! Cinema Lansing
- Celebration! Cinema Mt. Pleasant
- Cinema Carousel in Muskegon
With an audience of your peers, special families can enjoy something fun together that you might not typically be able to do. Brighter lights, lower sound, no previews and a group of people who understand your child’s disability will make this family outing enjoyable for everyone!
