Join the fun of the costume contest by dressing up in the flapper style of the 1920s, as though you were going to a wedding. One of the main features of this new Downton Abbey film is the wedding of widower Tom Branson and maid Lucy Smith. A parade of costumes will start at 6:30 p.m. and three prizes will be awarded for Best Period Style. First prize is four movie tickets, second prize is two movie tickets and third prize is one ticket

From award-winning creator Julian Fellowes comes “Downton Abbey: A New Era” set in the years 1928-29. The much-anticipated cinematic return of the global phenomenon reunites the beloved cast as they go on a grand journey to the South of France to uncover the mystery of the Dowager Countess' newly inherited villa.

And word has it that Lady Mary allows a film company to make a ‘moving picture’ at the grand estate … it’s the modern thing to do,” she says. The family is appalled.

Masks are no longer required, but highly recommended when arriving and moving around the theater. Once in your seat you may remove your mask if you wish.
