The Muppets is AMC’s Sensory Friendly Film for December

In partnership with The Autism Society, AMC hosts Sensory Friendly Films to families affected by autism on a monthly basis to select communities.

The program provides a special opportunity for families to enjoy their favorite films in a safe and accepting environment. The auditoriums dedicated to the program have their lights up, the sound turned down and audience members are invited to get up and dance, walk, shout or sing!

The program is offered at many locations nationwide — please click here for a complete list of participating theatres.  All shows are at 10:00 am local time.  Dates and films are subject to change.

December 3 – The Muppets

THE MUPPETS is the #1 family film at the box office!    If you plan to take your children to see The Muppets for AMC’s Sensory Friendly Saturday, I wanted to share some fun facts about the film!

PRETTY PIG – A total of 12 different costumes were made for Miss Piggy—more costume changes than any other actor in the film.

TOP TEACHER – Amy Adams’ character Mary is a teacher with 16 students. Thus, no less than 16 perfect apples sit on the edge of the stellar teacher’s desk.

ALL IN THE FAMILY – Choreographer Michael Rooney is the son of Mickey Rooney, who appears in the film in a cameo role. This is the first time the two have ever worked together on a film.

MINI ME – Muppet versions of Gary/Jason Segel and director James Bobin were created.

HIGH FASHION – Miss Piggy had shoes made for her by Christian Louboutin and a dress by Zac Posen, which she wears in the finale scene.

SEEING GREEN – Disney’s “The Muppets” was a green set (in more ways than one) with an environmental steward who made sure the proper recycling receptacles were utilized on set. All of paper products were made from recycled materials and were compostable. The production also provided each crew member with aluminum refillable water bottles to cut down on the use of plastic bottles and paper cups. Water was readily available on set for cast and crew to fill their personal water bottles.

MAKING HIS DEBUT – Walter was a character conceptualized by Jason Segel specifically for Disney’s “The Muppets.”

If you have a participating theater close to you and you decide to attend the showing, be sure to stop by and let us know what your family thought of the movie!
