Pajamas, pillows, blankets and stuffed animals are all welcome at the ASP Films pajama party and showing of “Where the Wild Things Are” at 7 and 9 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 21 in Viking Union 552. The film will also be shown at 7 and 9 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 22, but that one is not intended to be a pajama party.

“Bring pillows, blankets, stuffed animals, all kinds of things,” ASP Films Coordinator Matt Blair said.

Although the Monday showing is not planned to be a pajama party, people can show up to any movie in pajamas if they want to, Blair said.

The film “Where the Wild Things Are” is based on a nine-sentence book of the same name by Maurice Sendak that was first published in 1963.  The story follows the adventures of Max after he is sent to bed without dinner.

“We want to create a childlike atmosphere because the general hustle and bustle of college life seems so adult,” Blair said.

Blair said a pajama party felt appropriate because “Where the Wild Things Are” is a children’s story and that a pajama party would add to the childhood theme, especially because Max runs around in his pajamas the entire time.

“There might be some surprises in store,” Blair said.

Though there’s nothing set in stone, there could be a giveaways or door prizes.
The cost for “Where the Wild Things Are” is $3 at the door. Pajamas are not required, but encouraged.
