Bow Tie Cinemas will offer a free live broadcast of the inauguration of President Barack Obama in several locations this Tuesday, January 20, beginning at 10 a.m. “The broadcast will be in hi-definition on our giant screens, providing a dynamic alternative to viewing the event on television,” said Bow Tie Cinemas co-owner, Ben Moss.

The special screening will take place at the following Bow Tie Cinemas locations:
1 Westport/Norwalk, CT — Royale 6, 342 Westport Ave.
2 New Haven, CT — Criterion Cinemas, 86 Temple St.
3 Schenectady, NY — Movieland, 400 State St. at Broadway
4 Bronx, NY — American Theater, 1450 East Ave. in Parkchester

Admission is free and seating is on a first-come, first-served basis limited to theater capacity. The doors will open at 10 a.m. at each location.

Mr. Moss added, “We wanted to take the opportunity to present this historic event on our screens as a ‘thank you’ to the communities we serve. We feel our guests will remember not only the event, but the fact that they witnessed it in a communal setting with a large screen presentation.”
