No Sensory Friendly Planes or Turbo?

There were a lot of children's movies released this summer.  We had Despicable Me 2, Smurfs 2, Planes, Turbo and Monsters University.  Some good, some bad ... some both.

We had the opportunity to see three of them as a sensory friendly offering (DM2, MU and Smurfs 2).  We skipped Smurfs, having learned to leave our childhood memories dimly glowing at the end of Nostalgia Lane. 

I was looking forward to Planes and thought Turbo might be fun.  But looking at the Geneva Centre for Autism's upcoming events page neither will be offered.  They announced the next sensory film is The Little Mermaid in September.  (I'll do another post closer to the date.)

I'm grateful for the opportunity to see some of the kids' films this summer and I recognize that the sensory friendly films are probably a loss for the theatres with the increased staff costs and low turnout.  But I'm still disappointed not to have the full complement of offerings.
