AMC Theatres has come up with a way for those living with an autism spectrum disorder to enjoy a trip to the movies. AMC Sensory Friendly Films are geared towards enjoying an outing to the theatre in a safe and accepting environment. The theatres will have the lights up, sound turned lower, and audience members are invited to get up and dance, walk, shout or sing!
Sensory Friendly Films will feature four showings per month, on the second and fourth Tuesday and Saturday. Family-friendly movies will be shown on Saturday mornings, and the Tuesday evening showing are films that may appeal to a mature audience on the autism spectrum.
