April’s Sensory-Friendly Event at the Putnam

DATE: Sunday, April 14, 2019

The Putnam Museum is hosting another sensory-friendly film event! “Superpower Dogs” will premiere in its sensory-friendly version on the Putnam GIANT Screen Theater on Sunday, April 14 at 2:00 p.m.

The film will be modified to be “friendlier” to the senses. Changes to the environment and film experience include: theater lights dimmed but not turned off, volume turned down, all movies in 2D and few to no trailers before the film. The GIANT Screen Theater is fully accessible.

Patrons can move around and make noise during the show as well as bring in outside food and drink to suit their dietary needs. A designated “chill out zone” is available outside of the theater, providing additional comfort for all guests.

ALL ticket prices will be $5 per person using promo code ASQC at checkout. We hope to see you there!

Please visit for more information. Sensory-friendly screenings of documentaries on the GIANT Screen will be offered every second Sunday of the month.

Prior to the sensory-friendly showing of “Superpower Dogs,” the Putnam will hold its Dogs with Jobs from noon to 2 p.m., a FREE event that introduces some of the hardest-working hounds in our community including service and therapy dogs from Quad Cities Canine Assistance Network, Quad Cities Dog Obedience Club and Pawsitive Hearts. Learn more!
