WAKE FOREST — The Wake Forest Renaissance Centre will host a movie night for children with special needs Friday, Jan. 23, 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 make it enjoyable 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.
The Renaissance Centre is located at 405 S. Brooks St. in the heart of downtown Wake Forest.
For more information about Special Needs Movie Night, contact Recreation Program Superintendent Monica Lileton at 919-435-9563 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Editor’s note: While the agreement the town has with the Motion Picture Licensing Corporation prohibits them from releasing the name of the movie, from their hints, the movie is Ice Age: Continental Drift.
