In order to provide a more accepting and comfortable setting for this unique audience, the movie auditoriums will have their lights brought up and the sound turned down, families will be able to bring in their own gluten-free, casein-free snacks, and no previews or advertisements will be shown before the movie. Additionally, audience members are welcome to get up and dance, walk, shout or sing - in other words, AMC’s “Silence is Golden®” policy will not be enforced unless the safety of the audience is questioned.That is so cool!! We never go to movies, mostly because it's such a hassle with the 2 of them, the last time we saw Up and for the whole thing I don't think there was a single time when the 4 of us were all sitting in our seats together; we all spent a LOT of time in the lobby. Child 1 would be so happy to have an aisle to run up and down, we could totally make a sensory friendly movie work. Not Harry Potter, though, because even though they've seen all the other movies a bunch of times, I'm sure it's not appropriate for a 5 year old (even though he was Lord Voldemort for Halloween) and I need to see it first to see how scary it is. Anyway, I don't want to go see that with my kids, I want to see it with grownups!

I'd heard of these but we've never been to one, and I saw a link that select AMC theaters would be having some sensory friendly showings of the new Harry Potter movie, I checked it out; and check this out! How cool are sensory friendly movies??!
