The British Royal Family has a stuffy reputation, but there are some signs that the monarchy is willing to loosen up. Sandringham estate, Queen Elizabeth’s country home in Norfolk, England, is temporarily turning into a drive-in movie theater. On the weekend of September 25 through September 27, films like Rocketman, A Star is Born, the Greatest Showman, Toy Story, Grease, Moana, and 1917 will be shown in the royal setting.

The huge property in Norfolk sits 100 miles north of London. A designated area will be roped off for vehicles, and people will be able to sit or stand near their cars as they enjoy the films. Different food and drink vendors will be present on each day of the movie screenings.

Tickets for the screening cost $41, and for an extra $10 you can get premium seats, which include a larger bay for your car, deck chairs, a table, and popcorn.

The Royal Family’s hospitality doesn’t end at movie night. Throughout the course of the year, Sandringham estate will also host an apple-picking event at the estate’s orchard at the end of September, an enchanting light trail in November and December, a Christmas market during the holidays, and a theatrical performance of Romeo and Juliet in June 2021.
