Historian & A Movie: Sleepy Hollow

October 28 @ 6:30 pm

Celebrate the spooky season with this unique movie night! Join us in-person in the Gothic Chamber as we watch Tim Burton’s “Sleepy Hollow”(1999). Based on the Washington Irving tale by the same name, “Sleepy Hollow” is set in 1799 New York where young police constable Ichabod Crane investigates a series of murders in the rural town of Sleepy Hollow. We’ll hear from Philipse Manor Hall State Historic Site manager Michael Lord with commentary on what is and isn’t accurate to Irving’s story, the Hudson Valley’s Dutch heritage, and the history of late 18th century New York. “Sleepy Hollow” is rated R and is not recommended for young audiences. This program is free and open to the public, but registration is recommended. Register by calling 914-965-4027 or emailing sarah.johnson@parks.ny.gov. Costumes are encouraged but not required.
