Come Join Our Autism-Friendly Playgroup & Watch 'Super Mario Bros. Movie' For Free At GSC
Looking to connect and meet other families who have autistic children?
Join SAYS for a fun-filled, sensory-friendly movie screening at Golden Screen Cinemas (GSC)!
If you are someone with autism or know a family who has an autistic child, spread the word. In collaboration with GSC, SAYS will be organising a casual meet-up for families to watch a movie together in GSC's sensory-friendly hall, specially built for people with autism, who often experience sensory overload.
This playgroup will give parents a chance to get to know each other while their children enjoy playing and are free to be themselves in a safe space.
Sounds fun? Here are the deets:

ICYMI, GSC is the first cinema in Malaysia to open a sensory-friendly movie hall for children who have special needs
As advocates for inclusivity, GSC designated every second Sunday of the month for their sensory-friendly movie screenings. Priced at RM9 per ticket, these halls will have lower volume, dim lights, and a designated area for those who need a time-out.
You can find GSC's sensory-friendly halls at these locations:
- 3 Damansara, Petaling Jaya
- Kuantan City Mall, Pahang
- The Mall, Mid Valley Southkey, Johor Bahru
- AEON Falim, Ipoh
By doing this, GSC is creating a safe space for children with autism, so they too can enjoy watching movies with their families in a comfortable environment catered for them.
