Autism Society and AMC Offer Sensory Friendly Films




 

The Autism Society and AMC are partnering up to offer a special opportunity for families to enjoy their favorite films in a safe and accepting environment. Once a month, throughout 2014, local AMC theaters will 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 an AMC theater. More than 300 children and parents attended the first screening, and the program is now offered nationwide.

Washington locations include the AMC theaters in Kent, Woodinville, Lakewood and Burlington. All of the shows are on Saturdays at 10 a.m. Upcoming screenings are as follows:

  • April 19: RIO 2

  • May 31: MALFEICENT

  • June 21: HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON 2

  • July 26: PLANES: FIRE & RESCUE

  • Sept. 27: DOLPHIN TALE 2

  • Oct. 25: BOOK OF LIFE

  • Nov. 29: HOME 3-D

  • Dec. 13: PADDINGTON
