The Metropolitan Opera is coming to Barboursville, West Virginia!

The Met is broadcasting selected operas live in HD to movie theaters across the country for their fourth year. Previous seasons, the broadcasts could be seen in Morgantown and Ashland (KY).
A listener let us know that there will be a new location in West Virginia to experience opera in the movie theater:
While I was at the Barboursville Mall last night I dropped by the new Cinemark Theatre and was warmly greeted by the manager who informed me that, yes, his theatre would begin screening the Met Opera live on Saturdays, and repeated during the following week, beginning with Tosca on October 10.
Here's a link to the schedule and information about the Barboursville theater and the Morgantown theater.
The full list of theaters isn’t yet available, but I’ll be sure to let you know if I hear of others in or near West Virginia (and if I get any tickets to give away!)
