Build memories at The Lego Movie with AMC Sensory Friendly Films

See also

Going to see the latest family friendly movie is a weekly event for many children, but for kids with special needs it can be a challenging experience. The Autism Society of America and AMC have joined together to offer monthly screenings of first-run films in a more gentle atmosphere. The house lights are left on during the film and the sound is pulled back from its usual roar. Attendants can move around and even bring in special dietary snacks. The admission price is also reduced. AMC Sensory Friendly Films are offered nationwide. All screenings start at 10 am local time. To find a theatre near you, check the AMC website.

This month's offering is The Lego Movie, featuring the voice talents of Will Farrell, Morgan Freeman, Liam Neeson, Will Arnett and Chris Pratt. Lego is a huge hit with most kids, and the building bricks help develop hand-eye coordination, fine motor skills and creativity...if you throw away the directions. Then you can head home to try out The Lego Movie Videogame or build the Super Cycle Chase set...then you may want to release the Kraggle (you'll get it after you see the movie).
