A Queen is Crowned Film Viewing

Thu, 02 Jun 2022 10:00

To celebrate The Queen's Platinum Jubilee, Dronfield Town Council will be showing a screening of the only feature-length Technicolor record of the Coronation itself, continuous between 10am and 4pm on June 2nd, 2022.

When Queen Elizabeth the Second was crowned on June 2nd, 1953, many of Britain's leading cinematic artists were commissioned to create this wonderful record of the event. Narrated by Sir Laurence Olivier, it conveys the sights and sounds, the pomp and pageantry, the very spirit of that unforgettable day. Oscar-nominee and BAFTA-winner, A Queen is Crowned is one of the greatest films of an historical event ever made.

Also included is Palaces of a Queen - a 1966 documentary touring the six royal palaces: Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle, St. James's Palace, Hampton Court, Kensington Palace and Holyrood House.

Venue:
Civic Hall, Civic Centre
