Bring your whole family to the movies! 

For many families enrolled in the Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP) going to a movie theater together is simply not an option because loud sounds and a dark theater can be pretty overwhelming. Plus, the need to watch the movie in silence can be hard for some kids. At the EFMP Sensory Movie Night the lights are left on, the sound is turned down and audience members are invited to get up and move about as needed.

July 21st will feature Disney's Moana!

The Sensory Movie Event is for Exceptional Family Members (EFM) with sensory issues that may limit their ability to watch movies in a movie theater.

No registration required, just come on down to the Freedom Performaing Arts Center at Fort Carson.


What is an EFM?

An Exceptional Family Member (EFM) is a Family member, child or adult, with any physical, emotional, developmental or intellectual disorder that requires special treatment, therapy, education, training or counseling. The Exceptional Family Member Program is designed to assist military personnel agencies in making assignments for the Soldier, taking into consideration the documented medical and/or educational needs of the Soldier’s enrolled Family member. The program provides a multi-agency approach for community support, housing, medical, educational and personnel services to Families with special health and/or educational needs/concerns.
