In an effort to support central Georgia families living with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and related developmental disorders, AmStar Cinemas and Autism & Developmental Center, Atrium Health Navicent have partnered to host an event for children with ASD and related developmental disorders.

A sensory-friendly version of Smallfoot (PG) will be shown for children with ASD and related developmental disorders at AmStar Cinemas (5996 Zebulon Road, Macon) on Saturday, September 29 at 11:00 a.m. The movie will be screened at a softer volume with lights up.

ASD is a developmental disability that can cause social, communication and behavioral challenges.
