Ross Poldark rides again! If you’ve been watching Poldark on KPTS (or as I have, through Amazon Prime streaming (my affiliate link)), you’ll probably be super excited to hear about this Season 3 Premiere screening and happy hour reception in Wichita!
If you haven’t seen it yet, it’s the story of “the chivalrous and perilously proud crusader of Cornwall” (TV Guide), Ross Poldark, who returns to his home in England after the American Revolution to find that his father has died, his sweetheart is engaged to his cousin, and his inheritance is crumbling. From that sad state of affairs, due to his determination and “Poldark stubbornness,” along with the loyalty and love of his friends, rise hope and happiness. The series is worthy of binge-watching, so catch up on Seasons 1 and 2 with a free 30-day trial of Amazon Prime (affiliate) before Season 3 premieres on KPTS this fall. (But don’t tell me what happens – I’m only halfway through Season 2!)
In addition to watching on Amazon Prime, for a $75 one-time gift or $6.25 per month, people can support KPTS and gain access to a new program called Passport. This allows KPTS members to watch all your favorite PBS shows, including Poldark, Downton Abby, Nova, Nature and much more.
The new season of Poldark on MASTERPIECE begins on channel 8 – KPTS October 1, but you don’t have to wait until then. Join KPTS and other Poldark fans at the Wichita Scottish Rite Center on Thursday, September 28 for an advance screening of the first hour of Season 3.
At this FREE event, you’ll enjoy complimentary cookies by Truffles Catering. A cash bar and snack bar will also be available if you’d like to purchase refreshments.
Before and after the screening, get your picture taken with actors from the Wichita Scottish Rite Signature Theatre dressed in period costumers. You’ll also be able to enter a Poldark prize drawing.
Doors open for the event at 5 p.m. and the screening begins at 6 p.m.
The Wichita Scottish Rite Center is at 332 E. First Street, Wichita, Kansas.
On October 1, watch KPTS at 7 p.m. for Poldark Revealed, a behind-the-scenes look at the making of Poldark. Then watch the two-hour Poldark season premiere from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. that same evening.
