AMC is proud to partner with the Autism Society of America to offer unique movie showings where lights are turned up and the sound is turned down so viewers can get up, dance, walk, shout, or sing. The Sensory Friendly Film program is available on the second and fourth Saturday (family-friendly) and Tuesday evenings (mature audiences) of every month. In Minnesota, these showings are available at Eden Prairie Mall 18 and AMC Rosedale 14. Click here for specific showtimes and offerings.
