Sensory Friendly Films

September 26, 2009
10 a.m. local time

AMC Entertainment (AMC) and the Autism Society have teamed up to
bring families affected by autism and other disabilities a special
opportunity to enjoy their favorite films in a safe and accepting
environment on a monthly basis with the "Sensory Friendly Films" program.

In order to provide a more accepting and comfortable setting for this unique
audience, the movie auditoriums will have their lights brought up and the
sound turned down, families will be able to bring in their own gluten-free,
casein-free snacks, and no previews or advertisements will be shown before
the movie. Additionally, audience members are welcome to get up and dance,
walk, shout or sing - in other words, AMC's "Silence is GoldenR" policy will
not be enforced unless the safety of the audience is questioned.

Tickets are $4-6 depending on location and can be purchased on the day of
the event.

  1. I stumbled on your blog today and thought I would say hi! I have three sons, my oldest is on the spectrum and has SPD.

    Our whole family loves the sensory friendly movie showings. It is so handy to go there and know that not only can my 8 year old take in his heavy blanket, talk with the movie on, and walk around as he pleases--but even cooler to be in an enviornment where my 3 year old's can't-sit-still behavior isn't frowned upon!

    Take care,
