Sensory Friendly Family Screening

Sat 19 Sep 2020 3PM Draíocht Studio // €5 adults & children / Dur: 113 mins

Three thousand years ago, the greatest sailors in the world voyaged across the vast Pacific, discovering the many islands of Oceania. But then, for a millennium, their voyages stopped, and no one knows why ... Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Moana is about an adventurous teenager who, with help from demigod Maui (voiced by Dwayne Johnson) sails out on a daring mission to prove herself a master wayfinder and save her people.

Enjoy our Sensory Screening with lowered volume, lights on a low level, small audience size, comfy beanbags and the ability to make noise and move around freely during the screening if you wish.

PLEASE NOTE: This event has been rescheduled to Sat 19 Sept (FROM 07 APRIL). We are in the process of contacting all customers to transfer tickets to the new date or arrange refunds.
