Pajama Party Movie Night: Knights, Dragons, and Magical Monsters

This program is sold out.

Embark on a magical adventure as you enjoy short films featuring all sorts of fanciful creatures from friendly dragons to the monster under the bed. 

Before the movie begins, relax in the gardens and enjoy a picnic on the lawn. Sandwiches, drinks and snacks, including popcorn and other movie treats, will be available for purchase from the Cafe's express menu.

Hunt for knights and dragons in artwork displayed in the mansion and make your own work of art: decorative medals to celebrate your bravery, inspired by honorary knight's badges in Hillwood's collection. 

Bring pajamas, pillows, blankets, and cushions from home to get cozy as you head indoors and settle in for the film screening. Enjoy a selection of award-winning, family-friendly short films, including:

  • The Paper Bag Princess
  • Dragonboy
  • Leonardo the Terrible Monster
  • The Musical Dragon
  • The Search for the Monster of Lake Quannapowitt
  • I Need My Monster
  • How to Catch a Monster
  • Goldilocks and the Three Dinosaurs
