AMC Cinemas Sensory Friendly Film Screenings

Organization: AMC Theaters


In a partnership with the Autism Society, AMC Theaters is presenting sensory friendly films for families with kids with special needs.  They are shown on a monthly basis.

“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.”


Participating Theaters in New York City include:

AMC Loews 84th Street 6 (Upper West Side) –
