Autism-Friendly Harry Potter

This is pretty damn cool to me and might just make me forget some of the stupid things AMC Theaters have done to tick me off in the past.

Select AMC movie theaters across the US will be holding a special screening of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince for those affected by autism on July 25th.

Get all the details by clicking on the link above and check out what AnnMarie has to say about it.

This is an excellent example of the kind of spirit of inclusion this world needs, opening doors for those who have had them slammed in their faces in the past.

Thanks to AMC Theaters for stepping out and stepping up to take this first move. Now I hope to see others make whatever accommodations they can for those affected by autism, either personally or in their families.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince opens nationwide tomorrow, July 15, 2009. Cindy and I are going to catch a matinee showing this Saturday when I'm home for one day.

Thanks Dad. Stuff like this gives me so much hope for Mikey's future. It may seem small but to me.. it's huge.
