Sensory Friendly Films
AMC Theatres and the Autism Society have teamed up to bring families affected by Autsim and other disabilities a special opportunitiy to enjoy their favorite movies ina 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 the unique audience, th 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 welcom to get up and dance, walk, shout and sing - in other words, AMC'S "Silence is Golden" policy will not be enforced unless the safety of the audience is questioned.
