This Emmy® and Golden Globe® award-winning hit drama returns for a fifth season of intimately interlaced stories centered on an English country estate — an entertaining formula that has made Downton Abbey the highest-rated drama in PBS history. The acclaimed ensemble cast is joined by guest stars Harriet Walter as Lady Shackleton and Peter Egan as Lord Flintshire, together with new characters played by Richard E. Grant, Anna Chancellor and Rade Sherbedgia.
Light hors d’oeuvres, drinks and dancing plus a special performance by Shay Estes and Mark Lowrey. 1920s Downton Abbey-inspired costumes are strongly encouraged, and a free, advance screening of the Downton Abbey Season 5 premiere on MASTERPIECE. This is an exclusive event with limited space and will likely sell out!
Join us for January’s Community Cinema film, “A Path Appears.”
“A Path Appears” goes to the USA, Colombia, Haiti, and Kenya to reveal the incredible adversity faced every day by millions of women and girls, while also presenting glimpses of hope and change. From the team that brought you the groundbreaking Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide, this series begins with the stories of young women in America forced into a life of prostitution and the innovative programs that have evolved to achieve remarkable results in empowering their lives.
We’ll watch the first part of the series, which focuses on sex trafficking in Nashville, Chicago, and Boston.
Afterwards, we will discuss how sex trafficking affects our metro and region with community partners. The screening is free, but please RSVP here.
Please note: The program and film start at 11 a.m., so please plan to arrive at least a few minutes early.
