The Incredibles 3 AMC Sensory Friendly Films
AMC Theatres (AMC) and the Autism Society have teamed up to bring families affected by autism a special opportunity to enjoy their favorite films in a safe and accepting environment on a monthly basis with the Sensory Friendly Films program: the lights are turned up, the sound is turned down, you can bring in your own gluten-free, casein-free snacks, and no previews or advertisements will be shown before the movie. In addition, audience members are welcome to get up and dance, walk, shout or sing – in other words, AMC’s “Silence is Golden®” policy will not be enforced unless the safety of the audience is questioned.
Tuesday films usually start at 7:00 pm,
Saturday Films usually start at 10:00 am
PLEASE check with the theatre before attending as start times may change!
Sensory Friendly Films are now Showing at the AMC Loews White Marsh 16, AMC Columbia 14 and AMC Owings Mills 17.
