- Click 'Start' and then 'Run'
- Type in 'regedit' (just the text)
- Click on the names in this order; HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Lionhead Studios Ltd\TheMovies
- Once you've gone to 'The Movies', double click on 'Allow Any Decade'
- In the 'Value Data' box, change the '0' to a '1' and then press 'OK'

NOTE: ABSOLUTELY DO NOT MESS AROUND IN THE REGISTRY EDITOR OUTSIDE OF THE GAME FILES, AS YOU CAN DAMAGE YOUR SYSTEM IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU'RE DOING. BETTER SAFE THAN SORRY.
