So I was reading the paper this morning at breakfast before geology – of course my favorite section “Northwest.” It now includes local and entertainment news etc all into one. In the corner of one page I read an article titled, “Sensory-Friendly” screenings which is about how AMC Entertainment and the Autism Society of America are joining together to show movies for people that are affected by the condition. On Saturday morning, the AMC in Woodinville and the AMC theater in Kent will be playing the “Hannah Montana” movie at 10 AM. Instead of having the lights dimmed the lights will be up and the sound will actually be turned down a bit so the kids and families can dance, sing, stand or shout in the environment that will make them feel more comfortable. Tickets are $4-$6 but that will depend on the location.
I’m glad to hear that a theater I’m quite familliar with is participating in such a great cause.
