Warren Theatres on Saturday will offer a screening of “Wreck-It Ralph” in a theater adjusted for children with autism or severe sensory disorders.

The movie is 11 a.m. Saturday at the west Warren, near 21st and Tyler. Tickets are $7.

During the “sensory friendly” screening, the theater house lights will be turned up a little more than usual and the sound turned down. Audience members will be able to move around, talk, dance or sing. They also can bring their own snacks or other refreshments.

Bob Nooe, a counselor at Greiffenstein Alternative Elementary in Wichita, worked with Warren officials to schedule the show for special-needs children and their families. Theater officials said that depending on its popularity, they could schedule shows monthly.
