Sensory Friendly Movie: Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 1

NOTE: The Autism Society has changed the movie from Twilight to Tower Heist.

Enjoy a screening of Tower Heist in a sensory friendly environment on November 30 at 7 p.m.

AMC Entertainment and the Autism Society have teamed up to provide a mellower setting for families affected by autism and other disabilities. The movie auditorium will have its lights brought up and the sound turned down, families can bring in their own GFCF snacks, and no previews or ads will be shown before the movies. Audience members are also welcome to get up and move or vocalize. (Unless the safety of the audience is questioned.)

Tickets cost between $4 and $6 depending on the theater. The AMC Rio Cinemas 18 in Gaithersburg (9811 Washingtonian Blvd.) is one of the theaters that participates.
