AMC Entertainment 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.
The movie auditoriums will have their lights brought up, the sound turned down, and AMC’s “Silence is Golden®” policy will not be enforced. There will be no previews before the film so plan to arrive early as the movie will start at 10am. AMC is also being very generous and letting our families bring in their own GFCF snacks. Regular concessions are also available to purchase.
