Dinner & a Movie at Meadow Brook

The Great Estate is the perfect setting for a sensational movie experience whether you’re a film buff or simply looking for a unique night out.

Guests will enjoy the films “Clue,” “Houdini” and “Rear Window” projected on a big screen in our historic two-story Gothic-inspired Ballroom after enjoying a casual three-course dinner and cash bar in the Christopher Wren Dining Room.

The 2023 Dinner & a Movie films:

The first of 2023 Dinner and a Movie films shown will be the 1985 classic comedy “Clue” on Wednesday, Oct. 11. November will kick off with the 1953 “Houdini” – a film based on the great magician and escape artist and wrap with a screening of the Alfred Hitchcock classic mystery thriller, “Rear Window.”

When you enjoy an evening of film and food at the Great Estate,  you’ll also experience what it was like to be part of the family – as the ballroom was the original location for the Wilson family’s home movie theatre and features a drop-down screen and original built-in projection booth.
