AMC Sensory Friendly Films announces a partnership with the Autism Society of America.
In select communities “AMC Sensory Friendly Films” will be offered to families affected by autism, on a monthly basis.
The program provides a special opportunity for families to enjoy their favorite films in a safe and accepting environment. Their dedicated auditoriums have their lights brought 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 Columbia Mall 14 in Columbia, Maryland. More than 300 children and parents attended the first screening in November 2007. They now bring the program to 45 theaters in 24 markets.
AMC says it hopes these experiences can be a chance to change a life — to be a first: a first step, a first word, a first movie.
