AMC theaters is hosting a family movie each week this summer with proceeds benefitting autism research.  

Unfortunately the films are being shown here at 10pm on Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday nights.  My daughter and I did go last week though to see Hunger Games (again, because it's just that much better on the big screen).

The tickets are just $3, so definitely worth it if you don't mind going late.

Unfortunately we don't have AMC theaters around us. They are Carmike Cinemas

The program provides a special opportunity for families to enjoy their favorite films in a safe and accepting environment. The auditoriums dedicated to the program have their lights up, the sound turned down and audience members are invited to get up and dance, walk, shout or sing!

The idea for the program began with a request from a parent with an autistic child for a special screening at AMC Columbia Mall 14 in Columbia, MD. More than 300 children and parents attended the first screening.

We are thrilled to now offer the program at many locations nationwide — please see below for a complete list of participating theatres. As a leading theatrical exhibition company, we are so proud to be making a difference in the estimated 1.5 million Americans living with an autism spectrum disorder by offering families a chance to see a movie together — often for the very first time.
