The Cinema Arts Centre is proud to offer a special opportunity for those with autism and special needs to enjoy a movie in a safe and accepting environment. We will turn the lights up, and turn the sound down, so all can relax and enjoy quality time without worry. This is also a great opportunity for families to meet, siblings of those with autism to find peers, and for anyone to enjoy a fun film in a climate of understanding.

Our reception area will be open throughout the screening in case anyone needs to step out into a relaxing environment and have a healthy snack.  The reception will also be open after the screening, for food, refreshments, and a chance for folks to meet each other.

In the second live-action Muppets film, intrepid journalists Kermit, Fozzie and Gonzo snag an assignment reporting on a British jewel heist. Arriving in England, the trio settles in at the raucous Happiness Hotel and seeks out socialite Lady Holiday (Diana Rigg), the victim of the theft. Soon Miss Piggy appears, intending to work for Lady Holiday, but she ends up being framed by the aristocrat's scheming brother, Nicky (Charles Grodin). Kermit and company work to clear Piggy's name. (USA, 1981, 97 min., G, English | Dir. Jim Henson)
