SAFE (Supporting Autism Friendly Environments) Special Screening of Zootopia (M)
This special screening of Zootopia is tailored to be an Autism friendly event, which means:
   * Lights will be low but not off
   * Volume turned down
   * No trailers at the beginning of the film
   * Patrons allowed to bring their own food (for dietary restrictions such as GFCF diet)
   * Movie-goers are able to stand up and/or move around the cinema as needed

Doors open at 2:30pm.

Shown in partnership with The Lyric Theatre and VT Center for Autism Research.

The modern mammal metropolis of Zootopia is a city like no other. Comprised of habitat neighborhoods like ritzy Sahara Square and frigid Tundratown, it's a melting pot where animals from every environment live together--a place where no matter what you are, from the biggest elephant to the smallest shrew, you can be anything. But when rookie Officer Judy Hopps (voice of Ginnifer Goodwin) arrives, she discovers that being the first bunny on a police force of big, tough animals isn't so easy. Determined to prove herself, she jumps at the opportunity to crack a case, even if it means partnering with a fast-talking, scam-artist fox, Nick Wilde (voice of Jason Bateman), to solve the mystery. Walt Disney Animation Studios' "Zootopia," a comedy-adventure directed by Byron Howard ("Tangled," "Bolt") and Rich Moore ("Wreck-It Ralph," "The Simpsons") and co-directed by Jared Bush ("Penn Zero: Part-Time Hero"), opens in theaters on March 4, 2016.
