Sometimes making really simple changes or providing an additional resource including dimmed lights throughout the duration of the show, lowered sound levels, unrestricted movement and a longer intermission can make a world of difference and help create a more inclusive environment. Also specially curated menu of delicious snacks that is sugar free, gluten free and casein free is made available for the children," said Swaroop Reddy of SPI Cinemas.
