Bainbridge Cinemas Air Live Met Opera Performances This Winter

Earlier this year, BILA announced its Community Partner Program (CPP), which seeks to create greater linkages between Bainbridge Island lodgers and top businesses and attractions. Through social media, website link exchanges and brochure swaps, lodgers and business owners are working together to promote Bainbridge Island as a fantastic overnight destination.

far-away-entertainment-logoOne of our first community partners was Far Away Entertainment, which operates Bainbridge Island’s two cinemas, the Historic Lynwood Theatre and the five-plex Bainbridge Cinemas. In addition to sharing their weekly showtimes with our member lodgers and guests, BILA is partnering with Far Away Entertainment to promote their 2014-2015 Met Opera performances. Between November 2014 and April 2015, Bainbridge Cinemas will air seven Metropolitan Opera performances live on screen!

met-operas-at-bainbridge-cinemas-285x285Thanks to the BILA-Far Away partnership, guests of BILA member lodgers will receive a $2 discount on Met Opera Live On Screen tickets. This partnership is particularly exciting since it takes place during the tourism off-season, when out-of-town guests to Bainbridge Island have fewer activities. So, this winter, thanks to Far Away Entertainment, enjoy phenomenal music from the comfort of a cinema seat (popcorn and candy optional)!
