SFF Film Series Kicks Off This Saturday (Nov. 5th) at an AMC Theater Near You!

Though I mentioned it before, I thought this fun opportunity was worth a reminder. Puss In Boots is the first in a long line of new movies being shown in a sensory-friendly environment. It is showing at many (but not all) AMC theaters this Saturday, Nov. 5th at 10:00am.

We might take the kids to the UWS location on W. 84th and Broadway. If you’re headed there drop me a line, though, let’s face it, I won’t be hard to find with all of the kids in tow!

More theater locations can be found on AMC’s website, and information about the SFF film series is below:

IN PARTNERSHIP WITH THE AUTISM SOCIETY, WE BRING AMC SENSORY FRIENDLY FILMS TO FAMILIES AFFECTED BY AUTISM ON A MONTHLY BASIS TO SELECT COMMUNITIES.

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.

We are thrilled to now offer the program at many locations nationwide — please click here for a complete list of participating theatres. As a leading theatrical exhibition company, we are so proud to be making a difference in the estimated 1.5 million Americans living with an autism spectrum disorder by offering families a chance to see a movie together — often for the very first time.
