Weekend Happenings: Jan. 2-4, 2015

Downton Abbey Season 5 Viewing Party
Riverview Theather
3800 42nd Ave S., Mpls
Sun., Jan. 4, 2015
7:00 pm
Cost:  Free, but $5 donation suggested

As the fifth season of Downton Abbey begins on Sunday, you can watch the first episode, in its entirety, with a few hundred of your closest friends in the comfort of a fantastic movie theater dressed in your finest Downton attire (if you wish). That’s right, it’s a Downton Abbey viewing party on steroids.

Brought to you by Rewire, a new initiative from Twin Cities Public Television that involves smart and playful events, this event promises to be both. Imagine watching the show at the Riverview, sipping on a craft beer from Indeed Brewing (again, if you wish), and enjoying all the drama and excitement with a roomful of people. Oh, and live Tweeting is encouraged, but not required.

While a $5 donation is suggested, you can attend for free. The show – and the fun – begins at 7:00 pm and if you’d like to secure your tickets in advance you can do so by clicking here.
