Sensory Friendly Films Program

I saw this and wanted to pass this on. I love that they are helping our kids that wouldn't normally be able to go to the movies! Just awesome! This is just some of the information, please feel free to check it out for yourselves to see if they are hosting this in your area.

Autism Society

Autism RibbonAMC 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 Golden®” policy will not be enforced unless the safety of the audience is questioned.
