Special Needs Movie Night Sept. 11

The Wake Forest Renaissance Centre will host a Special Needs Movie Night on Friday, Sept. 11, at 6:30 p.m.

Sponsored by the Wake Forest Parks, Recreation & Cultural Resources Department, this free event will offer exceptional children and their families the opportunity to enjoy a film in a safe and accepting environment. To help ensure an enjoyable experience for everyone, the viewing area will include extra lighting, and the movie’s volume will be slightly lower.

The event’s theme is “fun without repercussions,” so audience members will be invited to get up and dance, walk, shout or sing.

There is no cost to participate but a parent or caretaker must accompany each child.

Concessions, including popcorn and soft drinks, will be available for purchase, but attendees are invited to bring their favorite snack.

Due to the terms and conditions in its agreement with the Motion Picture Licensing Corporation, the Renaissance Centre is not permitted to announce the title of this film to the general public. However, here’s a hint about the Sept. 11 film: it’s a PG-rated 2015 computer-animated comedy-adventure, featuring the voices of Rihanna, Jim Parsons and Steve Martin.

The Renaissance Centre is located at 405 S. Brooks St. in the heart of downtown Wake Forest.
