Fall and Winter 2012 Sensory Friendly Movies

The Autism Society and AMC Entertainment will show a sensory friendly movie once a month for the remainder of the year. The AMC Rio Cinemas 18 shows theirs at 10 am.

September 22: Finding Nemo (2D)

October 13: Frankenweenie

November 10: Wreck-It Ralph

December 8: Rise of the Guardians

AMC Entertainment and the Autism Society have teamed up to provide a mellower setting for families affected by autism and other disabilities. The movie auditorium will have its lights brought up and the sound turned down, families can bring in their own GFCF snacks, and no previews or ads will be shown before the movies. Audience members are also welcome to get up and move or vocalize. (Unless the safety of the audience is questioned.)

Tickets cost between $4 and $6 depending on the theater. The AMC Rio Cinemas 18 in Gaithersburg (9811 Washingtonian Blvd.) is one of the theaters that participates.
