I expect the persnickety posters are now gasping in horror.

Actually, no one will give fuck all. It's actually a nice thing for her to do for people in Norfolk in lockdown.
Sandringham is a big tourist attraction as it is.
Factoid: Arthur Conan Doyle got the idea for the Hound of the Baskervilles whilst on holiday there. Then he transferred the story to the moors.

That’s pretty nice.
How will they keep the riffraff from messing it up, though?

How convenient. The perfect place for Harry and Megs to show their Netflix films

Will they be showing "The Queen"? "The Crown?" "The Iron Lady"?

R7 - No, they'll be showing "Mrs Miniver" "Fire Over England" Olivier's "Henry V" "Dunkirk" "We Happy Few" "Battle of Britain" "Blithe Spirit" "The Horse's Mouth" "Four Feathers" (original cast of course) Lean's "Oliver Twist" and "Kind Hearts and Coronets" and in a nod to the sixties, "Morgan" and "Georgie Girl" and "A Hard Day's Night". On more daring nights, "Saturday Night and Sunday Morning" "Look Back in Anger" "This Sporting Life" and "Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner"
In fairness, those are all really fine films in their way. Personally, I consider Carol Reisz's "Morgan" one of the unsung finest of the era.

R8 from the article;
[quote] Movies that will be shown the weekend of Sep. 25 through Sept. 27 include 1917, Rocketman, Toy Story, The Greatest Showman, Grease, Moana, and A Star is Born. Appropriately, the Saturday evening film is a showing of Bohemian Rhapsody, which chronicles the rock-and-roll lifestyle of Freddie Mercury and the band Queen.
Its actually not a bad idea. I'd be up for it if I was a local, I like the idea of making out with my boyfriend in the front seat of my old Chevy in a drive-in movie

I'm sure Her Royal Frauness will be manning the ticket booth, and it will be a good opportunity for Fergie to make herself useful again...I can see her at the concession stand.

I guess they won't be showing any footage from that fateful night in Paris.

R8 I notice you've mentioned the great British films of the 40s — which, in my opinion, was Britain's golden decade of film-making. Though "We Happy Few" must be an error.

R15 - "Karel=Carol"
Good grief, yes, how remiss of me! Thanks!
R17 - I wasn't necessarily asserting that all of them were of equal quality - they're all very different, but I agree the 1940s was a tremendous era in British film-making, and I didn't even include Pressburger-Powell.
And, correct "We Happy Few" was an error. I was thinking about Robert Newton and it should have been "This Happy Breed" - also from the 1940s.
I always thought him a fantastic actor and the alcoholism that ended his life somewhere around 50 or so really tragic.
I think a Robert Newton Retrospective would be perfect for the Sandringham Film Festival.
