Sensory Friendly Films – Night at the Museum 2

nightatmuseumThe Autism Society of America teamed up with AMC Theatres to launch the Sensory Friendly Films program. This month’s film will be Night at the Museum 2 and the date is this Saturday, May 23!

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.
