Friday, March 6, 2020 | 12:22 PM

Onward, the latest animated film from Pixar, is facing high expectations and opens at The Tull Family Theater in Sewickley today. On Saturday, March 14, at 10 a.m., a sensory friendly screening of the film (1 hr 42 min.) will be hosted at the theater.

Adaptations that make the cinematic setting welcoming for those impacted by autism and other special needs include adjusted sound volume and lighting, no previews, screening room doors left open for those who need to stretch, and increased staffing levels that allow for a customized experience for each patron. The practices used for these inclusive screenings are detailed online: www.thetullfamilytheater.org/sensory-friendly-screenings.

Sensory friendly screenings are supported by the Thomas Marshall Foundation and donors of the theater so that all individuals and families can experience the magic of cinema.
