(WTHR) – AMC is now offering more inclusive movie opportunities.

AMC has partnered with the Autism Society for a program called "Sensory Friendly Films."

The Sensory Friendly program will be held on the second and fourth Saturday for family-friendly audiences and Tuesday evenings for mature audiences every month.

These special movie showings of are open to everyone, but are specifically designed for families that have members living with autism or other needs that may cause them to be sensitive to loud noises or dark spaces.

"AMC is proud to partner with the Autism Society to offer unique movie showings where we turn the lights up, and turn the sound down, so you can get up, dance, walk, shout or sing!" AMC says on their website.
