Vue Eastleigh was host to a string quartet that Queen Mary and King George V themselves would have been impressed with to celebrate the release of Downton Abbey on the big screen.
The film’s opening night was a classy affair with the Kaleidoscope String Quartet playing a series of melodies inspired by the British drama. Vue Eastleigh staff also donned “upstairs” and “downstairs” accessories to add to the theme.
The plot of the follow-up to the hit TV series focuses on an important royal visit from King George V and Queen Mary in 1927, who call on the Yorkshire Estate we’ve come to know and love. Most of the original cast are back for the feature as well as a few new faces.
Adam Palmer, General Manager at Vue Eastleigh, said:
‘Our staff loved dressing up in 1920s attire for the evening, it definitely jazzed up their normal day. The quartet were great and customers seemed to really enjoy it too. It was the perfect way to debut a truly iconic British drama on the big screen.’
