Focus on Special Needs – Sensory Friendly Films
Once upon a time, I posted about these Sensory Friendly Films featured by AMC theaters. It’s been a while, so I thought this was worth a repost.
AMC offers a “Sensory Friendly Film” in partnership with the Autism Society. Lights are left on, sound is turned down, and you can move around! But these shows aren’t just for children with autism. They are meant for anyone who has a disability that impedes them from watching a movie.
You can find more information on it here, including participating locations. The closest one to me is AMC 30 Gulfpointe.
- The second and fourth Tuesday and Saturday.
- Family-friendly movies will continue to show Saturdays, starting at 10am local time
- We’ve added Tuesday showings at 7pm local time that may appeal to others on the autism spectrum.
Instead of just once a month, the screenings have been expanded to four times a month! You can see a great family friendly film with everyone. This is a great program that I don’t think enough families know about.
