Queen Elizabeth’s Country Estate Is Being Transformed To A Drive-In Theater

The historic family home has been a private residence for the British royal family since 1862, and now you can enjoy the estate during a screening of a movie.

Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve all had to adapt to a whole new world. Many of us are now adding “mask” to the mental checklist that we run through before leaving our house. While we’ve all had to make adjustments, it’s still a work in progress getting used to this new way of life. There have been many businesses and venues that have had to shut down as a result of the pandemic, including movie theaters.

But the human spirit is capable of adapting to different situations and overcoming certain challenges. This is why there is no surprise that drive-in movie theaters have surged in popularity ever since the traditional movie-going experiences have been shut down.

And now there is a reason for people living in Norfolk, England, to get excited because the Queen is turning her country estate, the Sandringham House, into a drive-in movie theater for the month of September!

Queen Elizabeth II’s historic family home has been a private residence for the British royal family since 1862. The Sandringham House is a quaint 60-acre property that has formal gardens surrounded by beautiful countryside.

The cost of tickets will be about $38 per car. Those who attend will also get an option to buy an upgrade that includes a deck chair, table, popcorn, and a separate seating area beside your car. There will also be food vendors at all the screening events so you can get your snack on while enjoying an outdoor movie!
