On our DSASC calendar, you can subscribe to get weekly email updates on additions or edits to the calendar.

All events are now listed on the calendar, but it sometimes takes a few seconds to load when you visit the Calendar & News page. 
2. Movie Days
Cineplex Barrie offers Sensory-friendly movie showings.

Join some DSASC friends for favourite movies with the sound a little lower, the lights a little less dim, and an audience that you don't have to worry about annoying. 

All tickets are the price of a child's admission fee, and these show about once/month on Saturday mornings at 10:30. 

March 4: Lego Batman
April 1: Beauty and the Beast

More info on the Cineplex website.

*Note, there will not be a "host" from DSASC for this event, it is just being shared as a social opportunity being offered in the community, feel free to make arrangements to meet up with any member or non-member friends you wish. :)
