Still Don’t Have Plans For The Weekend?

Tomorrow is the next installment of the SFF Film series showing in NYC. The Muppets is the second in a long line of new movies being shown in a sensory-friendly environment. It is showing at many AMC theaters this Saturday, Dec. 3rd at 10:00am.

We might take the kids to the UWS location on W. 84th and Broadway, so if you’re headed there drop me a line!

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.
