Our ‘Spotlight On’ series features regional programs and activities in the arts and entertainment that have been designed for those touched by autism.
Attention movie lovers — AMC is offering sensory-friendly films for families touched by autism on a monthly basis in select communities all over the country. At the sensory-friendly showings, the auditoriums have their lights turned up, the sound turned down and the audience members are invited to get up and dance, walk, shout or sing (whatever goes!)
The idea for the program came from a parent of an autistic child in Columbia, MD, who had requested a special screening at their local AMC — and more than 300 children and parents attended that first screening.
So it may be time for a great movie night out for the entire family! To check out participating theatres and show dates, check out this site.
