“Sensory Friendly Films” coming to 7 New Jersey AMC Theatres in November

AMC Theatres and the Autism Society have teamed up to bring families affected by autism and other disorders, such as Tourette Syndrome, a special opportunity to enjoy their favorite films in a safe, accepting environment on a monthly basis with the “Sensory Friendly Films” program.

This program will be coming to New Jersey on Saturday, Nov. 5, when seven AMC Theatres around the state will show “Puss In Boots” at 10 a.m. The tickets will be priced between $4 and $6, and can be purchased on the day of the event.

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. In other words, AMC’s “Silence is Golden” policy will not be enforced unless the safety of the audience is questioned.

The New Jersey locations for this event are:

  • AMC Cherry Hill 24 2121 Route 38, Cherry Hill, N.J. 08002
  • AMC Jersey Gardens 20 651 Kapowski Road, Elizabeth, N.J. 07201
