Movie Showings for Guests & Families Living with Autism or Other Special Needs

AMC is proud to partner with the Autism Society to bring you unique movie showings where you can feel free to be you! We turn the lights up, and turn the sound down, so you can get up, dance, walk, shout or sing!

We are now expanding our Sensory Friendly Film program to four showings per month.

  • The second and fourth Tuesday and Saturday.
  • Family-friendly movies will continue to show Saturdays, starting at 10am local time
  • We've added Tuesday showings at 7pm local time that may appeal to others on the autism spectrum.

Share posts and pics of your family fun with #AMCSensoryFriendly.

Camp Awesum
Our mission is to provide a safe and secure environment for youth with autism and an opportunity to experience a residential summer camp.

Our vision is to provide an experience that enables campers to feel pride in learning new skills while being away from home. Campers will be with children their age, nine to fifteen year old youths (as of June 1, 2010), who share the same interests, skills, and wonderful gifts.

At Camp AweSum campers will learn new skills, gain confidence in being away from home, develop lifelong friendships, experience a summer camp without stress and anxiety, and be supported in all they attempt to do.

Camp facilities at Moon Beach include modern and clean cabins in a pristine Northwoods atmosphere. Meals are enjoyed in a family –like atmosphere of the Moon Beach dining hall. Camp AweSum is a typical camp experience with all the trimmings; arts & crafts, canoeing, hiking, swimming, fishing, campfires, and bog walks.
Ages 9-15
$825 (scholarships available)

June 27 – July 2
REGISTRATION TAKES PLACE ON JAN. 1ST FOR THE FOLLOWING SUMMER.
