To encourage safe socializing during the pandemic, the British monarchy is temporarily converting Sandringham Estate into a drive-in theater.
Queen Elizabeth II inherited the Norfolk country house after his death in 1952 from her father, King George VI, and normally spends holidays there with Prince Philip and other members of the royal family. While attendees are unlikely to see the Queen for themselves – she lived at Windsor Castle during the pandemic – watching a movie on royal turf will still be an unforgettable experience.
According to The Hollywood ReporterThe drive-in series begins with a 5 p.m. BST screening of 1
Each car gets a transmitter that you can connect to bluetooth or connect to your aux jack to hear the sound of the movie, and the attendants make sure the cars are parked so far apart that you can watch the movie from outside watch if you want [PDF]. Tickets are £ 32.50 (about $ 42) per car, and an additional £ 7.50 (almost $ 10) per person is provided with garden chairs, popcorn, and extra space to move around. Sandringham will also install a pop-up bar where another vendor will sell popcorn, snacks, drinks, and even alcohol for each movie.
