DECEMBER 4, 2015, JACKSONVILLE, IL – WSEC/PBS Jacksonville will host a pre-screening of the premiere of Downton Abbey’s sixth and final season on Dec.14, 2015 at the Playhouse on the Square in Jacksonville, which begins at 6:00 pm. Ace Hardware has generously agreed to sponsor the event in support of high-quality public television.

The event is open to public, but seating is limited, so attendees will need to make an additional membership gift of $5 or more to reserve a seat. Or, if a guest is not already a member, a membership of at least $5 gets you a reservation for this very special event. Membership pledges are requested as a small investment in your local PBS station.

“We’re very proud of this program, which has won more than 48 awards and received 168 nominations thus far over its five season span,” Dr. Jerold Gruebel said, the station’s President and CEO. “We’ll be sad to see it end, but know that this event will make for a great sendoff for such a beloved program.”
