There has been an awakening! Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens is out all over the world, and much like previous Star Wars movies it appeals to people of all kinds. The Force Awakens manages to be lively, fun, dark and yet appeal to old-fashioned Star Wars fans.

Truly no one should be excluded from this cultural phenomenon, and AMC is ensuring that no one has to be through the latest project to be launched in their theaters: "Sensory Friendly Films."

You can check out AMC theaters here, but for those of you who are ignoring that tantalizing click, Sensory Friendly Films are designed specifically for people with special needs, offering a healthier, more comfortable viewing experience to those in need.

AMC theaters are justifiably proud of their Sensory Friendly Films, describing them as:

"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!"

This Sensory Friendly Films project is a wonderful addition to modern cinema, offering the chance for autistic and special needs families to enjoy modern movies — which are often loud and intense — in a relaxed and safe environment.

If you have a friend or relative with special needs then Sensory Friendly Films could be the perfect way for them to enjoy Star Wars: The Force Awakens in an environment focused entirely on their requirements. Anyway, we all deserve a chance to enjoy Star Wars!
