Sensory Friendly Films

AMC Theatres in conjunction with the Autism Society of America are bringing 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.

What makes these movies different from a regular screening?

  • no previews or advertisements will be shown before the movie
  • 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
  • audience members are welcome to get up and dance, walk, shout or sing
  • AMC’s “Silence is Golden®” policy will not be enforced unless the safety of the audience is questioned

Upcoming Sensory-Friendly showings* include:

July 17 – Despicable Me
August 7 – Cats & Dogs 2
September 4 – Nanny McPhee Returns
October 2 – Legend of the Guardians – The Owls of Ga’Hoole
November 6 – MegaMind
November 20 – Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1
December 11  – The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader

All shows are at 10:00 am local time.
*Dates and films are subject to change.
