WVPT Public Television and The Paramount Theater are partnering once again to host the season four premiere of Downton Abbey—free and open to the public—Sunday, Jan. 5 at 9 p.m.  Before the theater’s free, live simulcast of the award-winning drama’s premiere, guests can attend a private reception beginning at 6:30 p.m. and featuring British fare, wine and guest speaker Richard Will, Chair of the McIntire Department of Music at the University of Virginia. In the fourth season of Downton Abbey, jazz moves from America to Europe and the house welcomes a new character, a jazz musician.
