A sensory friendly screening of the new John Krasinski film IF is set for Saturday, May 25, at 10:30 a.m. at The Lindsay Theater and Cultural Center.

All tickets will be discounted to $8.75 for this special event.

IF relates the funny and touching story of a girl who can see people's imaginary friends, and sets out to reunite the "pretend" playmates with the kids who loved them.

"Imaginary friends are not just these adorable creations, they are time capsules for our hopes, dreams, ambitions," says Krasinski. "I wanted people to leave this movie believing in something bigger and believing in something beautiful."

IF features Ryan Reynolds, Cailey Fleming and a star-studded cast of faces and voices including Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Louis Gossett Jr., Matt Damon, Maya Rudolph, Awkwafina, Bradley Cooper and Blake Lively.

The Lindsay's sensory friendly screenings are geared to families and individuals who are impacted by autism or other special needs, and enables the entire family to participate in the cinematic experience. No trailers are shown to reduce "sit time," dim house lights remain on throughout the screening and volume is lowered. Doors exiting the screening room remain open, allowing guests to easily walk into the lobby if they wish.

The Lindsay, which pioneered sensory friendly screenings northwest of Pittsburgh in 2017, schedules these showings to be the only events in the Theater and provides adequate staffing to create an enjoyable, low stress atmosphere for all attending.

Tickets are available online and at the door. [Please email the Theater if you are unable to attend because of ticket costs.]

The Theater, a nonprofit organization at 418 Walnut St., Sewickley, has attracted guests from across the tri-state area with sensory friendly screening event options to people living in suburban and rural areas. Parking in a metered municipal lot adjacent to the Theater is the easiest drop-off point for those with mobility challenges. A ramp also provides accessibility from Walnut Street.
