My niece invited me and my kids to go see Alvin and the Chipmonks with her and her kids. Her local county chapter of the autism society and the local AMC theature held a special showing of Alvin and the Chipmonks. The lights were adjusted so they were low, but not off. The sound was also adjusted so it was not too loud. They even did not show any trailers. My son had been to the movies twice before (Teenage Mutant Ninga Turtles and Rattatoulli) we only lasted 20 minutes tops at each. And we got alot of stares from other people when the melt downs began. We did have to take a few breaks and had one brushing and just walked around inthe lobby, but we did see at least half of the movie. He was cracking up laughing and still talks about the singing squirrells two weeks later. I have to find out how to get this in my area so we do not have to drive an hour, but wanted to let you know this was an option you may want to look into as well.
