Sensory Friendly Films in Houston for 2014

See also

AMC teams up with the Autism Society of America to bring Houston a series of ‘Sensory Friendly Films’ intended for children, teens, and adults with sensory challenges. The movies are appropriate for those with Autism or other sensory processing disorders who want to enjoy movies but are often held back by the traditional movie setting. The theater will still dim the lights, but the sound is kept lower volume, and audience members are welcome to ‘get up and dance, walk, shout or sing.’

In the Houston area, three AMC theatres participate in the sensory friendly film series:

The sensory friendly films are offered Saturday mornings at 10 a.m.

The current schedule for 2014 is

  • January 25: Nut Job
  • February 15: The Lego Movie
  • March 29: Muppets Most Wanted
  • April 19: Rio 2
  • May 31: Maleficent
  • June 21: How to Train Your Dragon 2
  • July 26: Plans: Fire & Rescue
  • September 27: Dolphin Tale 2
  • October 25: Book of Life
  • November 29: Home 3-D
  • December 13: Paddington

The schedule is subject to change. To find out more about the sensory friendly film series, check out the AMC Sensory Friendly Films website.
