“Sensory Friendly Films”
In 2007, AMC Theatres (AMC) and the Autism Society teamed up to offer “Sensory Friendly Films” as a special opportunity for individuals living with autism and others to enjoy their favorite films in a safe and accepting environment. In order to provide a more accepting and comfortable setting for individuals on the autism spectrum, the auditoriums lights are dimmed, the sound turned down and audience members are invited to get up and dance, walk, shout or sing! The movie is typically G- or PG-rated and starts promptly at 10:00 a.m. and does not show previews or advertisements. Also, families are permitted to bring their own gluten-free, casein-free snacks from home.
