Search for Sensory-Friendly Presentations

Posted on Wednesday, April 4th, 2018 5:05 PM

Screenshot of the advanced search tool for Sensory-Friendly Showtimes

Some theaters have special presentations that cater to moviegoers with special needs and those that prefer to go to movies where the sound isn't quite as loud, the lights aren't quite as low, and/or the audience is encouraged to move around and vocalize during the movie, but they've been somewhat difficult to find.

Until now.

We've just added an new search in our Advanced Search tool that provides you with easy access to finding "Sensory-Friendly" showtimes:

Search for Sensory-Friendly Presentations

AMC Theatres calls these shows "Sensory Friendly Films" in partnership with the Autism Society while Marcus Theatres offers the "Reel Movies for Real Needs" program. Celebration! Cinema is working with Family Hope Foundation and calls them "Sensory Showtimes," but the end result is pretty similar at each.

As of now, there are more than a dozen movies being shown currently or in the future that qualify under these categories. If you find an example that our search tool misses (each theater calls it a different name), please let us know by using the Feedback Form and provide us with the details!

We hope that this search tool makes it easy for you to find these showings at a theater near you! For more information, please see our Help document: What are 'Sensory Friendly' Showings?
