The TREX Cinema plans to offer sensory friendly films which means they will have special showings of films with the lights up and the sound lowered without previews to accommodate families that would love to be able to attend a movie and have a safe space where their children are welcomed to be themselves! Dancing, singing, giggling, and even crying will be welcomed. The Trexlers noted that as a large family with lots of small children, they understand that every child deserves the chance to experience the magic of the movies without being shamed for making noise. I'm not aware of anywhere else in the Triad that offers sensory friendly movies, so this is a welcome and much needed chance for neurodivergent individuals to enjoy films.

TREX Cinema will be opening on May 11th in the old Countryside Cinema location (755 Cinema Cr Kernersville) with 3 movies - Guardians of Galaxy volume 3, Book Club - The Next Chapter, and Super Mario Bros. They are have been holding open interviews in recent weeks and should have their prices released soon. They're running a giveaway on their Facebook page if you want to enter and help to spread the word about the cinema!

Longtime Kernersville residents have been eagerly awaiting someone to renovate this space and reopen a cinema for the town, and thankfully the Trexler family has stepped up to the plate to do just that. This has been no small task, as the location has been in a state of disrepair for years and has needed a lot of TLC to be able to restore its dilapidated interior to something that is fit to welcome the public back again.

A little about the family: The seven of us grew up with our parents owning movie theaters, and we are so excited to be on this journey as a family. Our parents Don and Kathy instilled a huge love of going to the movies in us from a young age. As a large family we know how valuable family time is, and we are so excited to get to join the community with a safe, clean, family-friendly cinema! We are working on the theater and can’t wait for your families to make great memories with ours!
