Sensory Friendly Films – 2012

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:

March 10 – Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax
April 7 –
Mirror Mirror
May 5 –
Pirates! Band of Misfits
June 16 –
Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted

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

This program is available at many locations across the USA.  For a complete list of participating theatres visit AMC Entertainment.

Kitchen Aid Professional Mixer

KitchenAid Professional 600 Series 6-Qt Stand Mixer

I decided to spoil myself for my birthday this year with this fancy KitchenAid Professional 6-Qt Stand Mixer. I’d been toying with the idea of getting a stand mixer this past year, since starting to bake large batches of gluten free cookies for our son.

With prices typically between $299 and $499, depending on the model it was going to have to be a great price at the right time.

At just $259 I got this professional mixer that was normally $499 along with free shipping and no sales tax.


If you’d like to order a KitchenAid KP26M1PSL Professional 600 Series 6-Quart Stand Mixer, Silver that features 10 mixing speeds and comes with the dough hook, flat beater, and wire whip attachments they are currently still selling for this low price.

I need to tell you that I did not get paid to write this blog post.  I will earn a commission if you choose to purchase from the link in this post.
