Parents of children with Autism and sensory issues now have a new option when it comes to going to the movies with their kids! AMC Theatres and The Autism Society have teamed up to provide special showings of movies in a safe and accepting environment on a monthly basis. This month’s movie? “Wreck-It Ralph”. And the special showing will occur this Saturday, November 10, at AMC Theatres across the country. Locally, families can enjoy the movie at AMC Star Theatre (3000 Alpine Avenue, Grand Rapids).

The movie will be shown at 10a.m. EST, and tickets will cost anywhere from $4 – $6 and can be purchased on site the day of the movie.

What can you expect at these “Sensory Friendly Films”? According to the Autism Society’s website

In order to provide a more accepting and comfortable setting for this unique audience, the movie auditoriums will have their lights brought up and the sound turned down, families will be able to bring in their own gluten-free, casein-free snacks, and no previews or advertisements will be shown before the movie. Additionally, 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.
