Theatres in Clifton, Elizabeth, Freehold, New Brunswick, Rockaway and Wayne
will show the hit movie on July 21 for those with Tourette Syndrome and associated disorders
AMC Theatres and the Autism Society have formed a lasting partnership that brings families affected by autism and other disorders – such as Tourette Syndrome, ADD, ADHD, anxiety and depression – a special opportunity to enjoy their favorite films in a safe, accepting environment on a monthly basis with the “Sensory Friendly Films” program.
The next sensory-friendly event in New Jersey will take place on Saturday, July 21, when six AMC Theatres will show “Ice Age: Continental Drift” at 10 a.m. Tickets are $4 to $6 and can be purchased on the day of the event. This event comes on the heels of successful “Madagascar 3” and “Brave” showings in June.
To provide a more accepting and comfortable setting, the movie auditoriums will have their lights brought up and the sound turned down; families can bring in their own gluten-free, casein-free snacks; and no previews or advertisements will be shown before the movie. Attendees also are welcome to get up and dance, walk, shout or sing – AMC’s “Silence is Golden” policy will not be enforced unless the safety of the audience is questioned.
