Heather B. told us about a really cool program from AMC theaters that might interest some of you or maybe you can pass along to a friend. AMC theaters offers special screenings of movies that are sensory friendly!
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 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, MD. More than 300 children and parents attended the first screening.
They are now doing this Nationwide! Go HERE for more information!
