We hope you will join us at one of our three valley locations for the Sensory Friendly Film-Nanny McPhee Returns on Saturday, September 4th at 10am. The cost is only $5 per person. We have recently added a third theater in the valley to be able to reach more families throughout the valley that would enjoy this original movie experience.

AMC Entertainment (AMC) and the Autism Society have teamed up to bring families affected by autism a special opportunity to enjoy their favorite films in a safe and accepting environment each month.

With Sensory Friendly Films, the movie auditoriums will have their lights brought up and the sound turned down. Additionally, audience members are welcome to get up and dance, walk, shout or sing. For tickets for these events, please visit the theater the day of the show. We’ll see you at the show!
