"The Lord Montagu" at Newport Beach Film Festival

This documentary tells the fascinating story of Lord Edward Montagu and his attempts to save the family estate,Beaulieu, from ruin. To pay Beaulileu's taxes after World Wat II, Lord Mantagu opened his home as a public tourist attraction. In 1954, he was arrested for homosexual offenses and sentenced to prison. He became England's most infamous aristocratic prisoner. His trial became the catalyst for change in British laws regarding homosexual activity. After his release from prison, he once more sets upon the task of saving Beaulieu.

This movie is a presentation of the Newport Beach Film Festival. Ticket prices are $14 with a $1 service charge. There will be a director and producer Q & A after the movie. If you would like to join us for dinner, we will meet at the Fashion Island Atrium food court at 6:00 PM. Gathering spot is the front of Barnes and Noble on the bottom floor. The festival producers recommend that we be in our seats 15 minutes before show time. The theater is located inside Fashion Island. PLEASE DO NOT RSVP TO THIS EVENT UNLESS YOU HAVE PURCHASED A TICKET.

    This was an excellent documentary. I think the description could have been better. It was surprisingly better than described.

    I walked over the other side of FI to B&N for 6pm, no-one was there. I am at the yard house near the theater if anyone wants to join ( sat at the bar on the far side). I was in the ticket line a long time, 4th floor parking lot, there is no separate will call and you need your order number ( they couldn't pull my tickets using my name).

    I probably won't be there by 6pm. Our movie is on the other side of the shopping center, so I will park by the theaters. Where will we meet up before the feature starts? Is there a cell # we can reach you? Mine is[masked]

      Just FYI, though, I highly recommend everyone being there in time to be in your seats at 7:30, just to make sure you can all sit together, etc. DEFINITELY be in your seats before 7:45 because that's when the Festival starts letting in the Rush line.
