Dinner and a Movie
We’ve perfected the classic date night – with Dinner & a Movie at Meadow Brook!
Dinner & a Movie at Meadow Brook – SOLD OUT for 2022
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 “Hocus Pocus,” “Psycho” and “Arsenic and Old Lace” 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 2022 Dinner & a Movie films:
The first of 2022 Dinner and a Movie films shown will be the 1993 comedy fantasy “Hocus Pocus” – a perfect time to catch up on the original, just as the sequel is being released.
Next up later in October, we’ll be showing the Hitchcock horror classic “Psycho.” On the first Friday of November, we’ll screen the Cary Grant dark comedy “Arsenic & Old Lace.”
When you enjoy an evening of film and food at the Hall, you’ll also experience what it was like to be a 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.

ABOUT THE FILMS:
Thursday, Oct. 6
Hocus Pocus has been a perpetual Halloween fan favorite since its debut almost 30 years ago. The story revolves around three witches who were executed in 17th century Salem. After they are awakened by a curious young boy, his sister and hopeful girlfriend, mayhem ensues. The movie stars Bette Midler, Kathy Najimy and Sarah Jessica Parker.
Psycho is considered one of famed American thriller director Alfred Hitchcock’s best films, and is perhaps the first thrasher film. It has been praised as a major work of cinematic art by international film critics and scholars due to its slick direction, tense atmosphere, impressive camerawork, a memorable score and iconic performances. It was hugely successful at the box office and features Anthony Perkins playing an unusual motel manager and Janet Leigh as an unfortunate inn guest in this terrifying Hitchcock film.
Arsenic & Old Lace
Friday, Nov. 4
In this dark screwball comedy, Cary Grant (playing Mortimer Brewster) returns to his family home and discovers that his sweet old aunts are hiding a deadly secret. Hijinks ensue in this charming classic that is filled with charismatic cameos – including fan favorites Peter Lorre and Boris Karloff – as Mortimer attempts to manage this situation and pack up his new bride for their honeymoon.
