Ongoing Activities

AMC Theatres Sensory Friendly Films
AMC theatres in Livonia, Sterling Heights and Clinton Twp. offer sensory friendly film opportunities for children and adults with special needs.  Patrons can bring their own gluten-free or casein-free snacks and the kids can “dance, walk, shout or sing” or move about the aisles. No previews or advertisements will be shown before the movies. The movies are geared toward children ages 5 & up and showings begin at 10 am on Saturdays. Tuesday evening movie showings may be geared to an older audience and begin at 7 pm. Dates and films are subject to change.   Click here for more information and listing of movie dates and times.

Emagine Theatres Sensory Friendly Movies
Emagine Theatres in Novi, Rochester Hills and Saline offer sensory friendly movie experiences for children and adults with special needs.  Films are sensory friendly (lights up a bit, sound down a bit), if your child needs to get up, move, dance, sing….. no problem.  If your child has food allergies or is a picky eater, you’re welcome to bring your own “safe” snack for them.  Click here for more information and listing of movie dates and times.
