On Saturday, Feb. 24 at 10:30 a.m. at six participating Emagine Theatres, the lights in the theater will be brighter, the sound in the theater will be lower, and most of the children watching Peter Rabbit will either have an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) or know someone that does.

Families with food allergies or food sensitivities will also be allowed to bring their own snacks from home.
