Giant Screen Experience will be closed January 4 - 23, 2017 for cleaning and maintenance.
Get ready to take your students on an amazing journey. At The Henry Ford, we think teachers should “run the show.” Your school or youth group can customize a Giant Screen Experience with your choice of morning programming. Choose your movie. Choose your time. It’s that simple and requires no additional fee.

Sensory Friendly Screening Option
With a Sensory Friendly Screening, the lights are turned up, the sound is turned down, and the film is shown in 2D to create a more comfortable, enjoyable experience for people with autism and other sensory issues/special needs. This creates an environment of flexibility and acceptance for anyone unable to sit down for the entire film. Sensory Friendly Screenings are scheduled on the third Thursday of each month from October through June.
The films shown at our theater can be an important supplement to your classroom teaching. To make your teaching experience easier and richer, we provide teacher guides and curriculum alignments. See the Resource Bank for a complete list of educational resources.
