The Granada Theater will cater to their sensory-sensitive patrons with an 11 a.m. Saturday showing of “Peanuts” (rated G). The lights will be dimmed but not turned off and the volume will be decreased.
Those who are light and sound sensitive are invited to participate in this special showing and let the staff know if it was more comfortable for them. The staff at the Granada are using this event to see if their sensory-sensitive patrons come out to see it and respond well to the changes.
If successful, the Granada will schedule more sensory-friendly shows in the future.
