Sensory Friendly Films – AMC Theatres

Posted by Glen LaGrou December 14, 2013 Health, Special Needs

AMC Theatres throughout Metro Detroit, Michigan (and the country) hold sensory friendly film showings for individuals and families affected by autism and other disabilities as part of their Sensory Friendly Films program.

Families affected by autism and other disabilities can enjoy movies in a safe and accepting environment during the monthly Sensory Friendly Films program. Sensory film showings feature lowered sound and dim lighting. Patrons can bring their own gluten-free or casein-free snacks and the kids can “dance, walk, shout or sing” or move about the aisles. No previews or advertisements will be shown before the movies. The movies are geared toward children ages 5 & up and showings begin at 10am. All shows are at 10:00 am local time. Dates and films are subject to change so it’s best to contact the participating theatres directly before each sesnsory friendly film showing.
