AMC Theatres offers sensory friendly movies once or twice a month at many of their theaters across the nation. I’ve written about this program before but wanted to share the newest movies being offered. Here are the movies they plan on showing from now through the end of the summer:

May 5 – Pirates! Band of Misfits

June 16 – Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted

June 30 – Brave

July 21 – Ice Age: Continental Drift

August 11 – Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days

Sensory Friendly Films at AMC

I was so excited to find this that I just had to share… AMC Entertainment is partnering with The Autism Society to bring Sensory Friendly Films to select communities on a monthly basis. According to their website, “the 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 tentative upcoming Sensory Friendly Films are:

(Updated Movie Schedule 9/23/11)

October 1 – Dolphin Tale

November 5 – Puss in Boots

 

*The site says that all shows are scheduled for 10am on these days but that dates and movies are tentative so be sure to call ahead.
