F.A.S.T. goes to the Movies

The Family for Autism Support of Texoma heads to the movies, for the first time

Many of us don't think twice about going to see a movie.

But today a special group of children got to see a movie on the big screen.

We caught members loading up on popcorn, drinks and, other items before the settled in their seats to watch "Brave," Pixar's new animated release.

The kids are part of the group Family for Autism Support of Texoma, also known as "FAST."

Cinemark Theater in Parker Square made the movie "sensory friendly" for fast members, keeping the lights on and volume not so loud.

One mother says she's thankful Cinemark is paving the way for her child to catch a movie.

"We get to do something that not a lot of us parents with children with autism, most of the time we are worried about them being quite we have never really been able to do this so it's a big deal to us," Destinee Davis said.

This was the first time FAST is enjoying a movie at the theater.

And, they hope it will not be the last.
