AMC Theaters offers sensory friendly movies on select Tuesdays and Saturdays each month. Sensory friendly movie screenings to cater to those with autism and other special needs conditions.
These movie dates provide a special opportunity for families to enjoy their favorite films in a safe and accepting environment. The movie auditoriums have their lights up, the sound turned down and audience members are invited to get up and dance, walk, shout or sing!
Sensory Friendly Movies Showtimes
Saturday shows are generally at 10 am and Tuesday at 7 pm local time. Dates and films are subject to change, so check with your local theater to confirm. Tuesday evening showings are not necessarily for young children, but may appeal to others on the autism spectrum.
