Family Events


Wherever you are on your journey, you are not alone.

The Autism Society of Southeastern Wisconsin keeps you informed with weekly updates, communications and a referral based resource directory full of people that specialize in meeting your families’ individualized needs.

Our family events provide a sense of community and support. They offer a chance to connect and interact with other families that understand and are with you every step of your journey.


AMC Sensory Friendly Films

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’ve expanded our Sensory Friendly Film program to four showings per month.

  • The second and fourth Tuesday and Saturday
  • Family-friendly movies continue to show on Saturday mornings
  • Films that may appeal to older audiences now show Tuesday evenings
  • Check your local theatre listings for specific showtimes on these days

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