Sensory Friendly Films
This program provides a special opportunity for families to enjoy their favorite films in a safe and accepting environment. The auditoriums dedicated to the program have their lights up, the sound turned down and audience members are invited to get up and dance, walk, shout or sing!
The idea for the program began with a request from a parent with an autistic child for a special screening at AMC in Maryland. More than 300 children and parents attended the first screening.
This program is now offered at many locations nationwide giving families a chance to see a movie together — often for the very first time.
