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

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. 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 such family favorites as Dragons Love Tacos and Leonardo, the Terrible Monster.

Movies recommended for children ages 3-8.
