The new season of Downton Abbey begins airing on Sunday, Jan. 4, but some diehard fans will get a sneak peek in Middletown or Torrington a day or two earlier.
If you cannot wait to see what happens between Carson and Mrs. Hughes, what becomes of Lady Mary’s love life or whether Lady Edith can keep her secret, register to attend the event at the Warner Theatre.
On Friday, Jan. 2, CPTV is showing the first hour of season 5 at the Wesleyan University Center for the Arts in Middletown, beginning at 7 p.m., but the reservation page says this showing is sold out.
On Saturday, Jan. 3, the Warner Theatre in Torrington will show the premiere and host a Downton Abbey-themed costume contest. The event starts at 6 p.m.
