Madagascar - Sensory Friendly Screening

Madagascar - Sensory Friendly Screening

Sat 3 Jun 2017 3PM Draíocht Studio // €5 adults & children Dur: 86 mins

Four zoo animals are shipped back to their homeland by an animal rights group that feels they belong in the wild. When the ship capsizes, the animals find themselves stranded in Madagascar. Having had humans care for them their entire life, they know nothing about survival and must work together with the locals to help them fit in.

For this sensory friendly screening the volume is lowered, the auditorium lights are left on at a low level so the auditorium won't be in total darkness, we have restricted the capacity and viewers can make noise and move around the auditorium space if they wish.
