Fans of the hit PBS period drama Downton Abbey donned their best show-inspired attire at the Altria Theater Saturday evening for a sneak peek of the show’s final season on the big screen. Following a cocktail reception, guests were treated to an appearance by Phyllis Logan, who you may know as Mrs. Hughes.
The Civil War drama was filmed in and around Petersburg.
Four new restaurants opened this week, from Oregon Hill to Chester; Willow Lawn to Short Pump. Lots of beer news, too, including a top ten brewer eyeing the city for expansion. Plus, chef and author Kendra Bailey Morris takes a trip to the paw-paw patch before stopping into Southern Season for a cookbook signing.
One of the most beloved television shows is getting the cinematic treatment, as half of Downton Abbey‘s third season premiere will screen at the Byrd Theatre.
