Top 5: Best Queens in film

In honour of Queen Elizabeth II celebrating 70 years on the throne, we have taken a moment to consider the greatest portrayals of queens in cinema history. 

Let the royal list commence!

5. Queen Elizabeth II, The Queen

Possibly the most regal non-member of the royal family, Helen Mirren can always be trusted to deliver a performance fit for a queen. You know she is good when the most famous scene in the film is simply her looking at a stag.


4. Queen, Bohemian Rhapsody

Yes yes we know it’s a cop out…but we simply could not have a top 5 queens without QUEEN. We are just thrilled to be seeing the iconic re-enactment of Live Aid on the big screen again. Come and celebrate the Queen with Queen.

3. Queen & Slim

Another stretch for the word ‘queen’, but an essential one. Jodie Turner-Smith is breathtaking alongside Daniel Kaluuya in this tragic and timely tale of a tinder date gone wrong. Catch Queen and Slim’s journey across America this Jubilee weekend!


2. Priscilla Queen of the Desert, The Adventures of Priscilla Queen of the Desert

She may not have the dependability of our Queen Elizabeth II, but she certainly has the glamour. Against all odds she selflessly, bravely and gorgeously guides her passengers across the outback. Her stoic poise pauses only for opera played at full blast. Royally fabulous in every way!


1. Queen Clarisse Renaldi, The Princess Diaries

A Queen is never late, everyone else is simply early. Need we say more?


Themed cinema which brings people together
