What we're about

Hollywood "options" books for filmmakers, in TV and cinema. I launched OPT'd to meet other enthusiastic media fans and share our different experiences in reading the same book and/or seeing its filmed adaptation, not always in that order. This can include books not yet "opt'd" by filmmakers and those prime for reboots. Some fans might not have time to read/listen to the book or prefer to watch its story on screen. It's all fine, just show up and share, respectfully, with others.

Tea Time: DOWNTON ABBEY group screening

Alamo Drafthouse Cinema Raleigh

Whether living upstairs or downstairs, sharing a home makes you part of the family: Welcome to DOWNTON ABBEY. The award-winning beloved PBS series about an estate's ever-changing fortunes and its residents inspired by historical homes (like Highclere Castle, the "film stand-in") now invites moviegoers into its bustling hallways with its cinema debut. Choose whichever event tickles your fancy — high tea, best dressed soirees, matinees or our evening group screening (details below). If joining us, buy your ticket on the Alamo app — our party is seated in row 6 for the 6pm showtime, seating starts at 5:30pm; there is a PBS donation available online during ticket purchase and in-theatre. Come meet us in the lobby for a pre- or post-show chat. You don't have to be a return fan, love tea or wear a fascinator hat, but impeccable manners are forever fashionable. We do appreciate RVSPs, with comments below and on our discussion board, thank you!
