Sensory friendly events coming to Bangor & Brewer

BANGOR/BREWER - The lights, music, surround sound and the newest box office hit is what attracts many movie goers to theaters, but those are the exact things that keep a portion of our society from enjoying this great American past time. Over the summer, Bangor Mall Cinemas showed a gentle viewing or sensory friendly version of the Pixar flick "Brave" for families that have children with autism, ADHD or sensory issues. The staff offered a daytime version of the film with the lights on, the sound down and allowed attendees to walk around the theater during the movie. It was a successful event that now has area families wanting more.
