Movies at the theater are usually very dark with booming sound… not the best for little kids. I just found out about “Sensory Friendly Films” at AMC Theatres. The lights on, the sound is turned down to a regular level and audience members can make noise and get up out of their seats. The idea started for autistic children, but it’s great for all kids! The dates and films change, but they are usually scheduled for 10am.
