Individuals interested in seeing American Sniper in theaters but who may be sensitive to loud noises or extreme darkness can see a sensory sensitive showing of the movie on Memorial Day.

Movies 6 will show American Sniper at 4:30 p.m. Monday, May 25, according to a flyer at the business. The lights will dimmed slightly and the sound will be turned down to make the movie more enjoyable for anyone who may experience discomfort in the dark or with loud noises, including people who experience post-traumatic stress or anxiety.

The theater has previously shown sensory sensitive movies for people with Autism.

Tickets are available to purchase online ($1.90 each) or at the theater ($1.15 each). The 4:30 p.m. showing is the only showtime for American Sniper on Memorial Day.

American Sniper is the movie adaptation of an autobiography by Chief Petty Officer Chris Kyle. Kyle was a U.S. Navy SEAL and is most lethal sniper in U.S. military history with 160 confirmed kills. He was killed in February 2013. The movie was directed by Clint Eastwood and is rated R for strong and disturbing war violence and adult language, including some sexual references.

Movies 6 is located at 6424 N. Grape Road, Mishawaka, behind Best Buy.
