Weekend events: Winter sports take over
STATE COLLEGE – The deep freeze is over – at least for now.
After a weekend of single-digit temperatures, this weekend figures to be a little better with temperatures in the 30s on Saturday and 20s on Sunday.
With that in mind, there’s an awful lot going on in and around Happy Valley this weekend. Let’s take a look at some of the highlights:
FRIDAY, JAN. 12

SATURDAY, JAN. 13
“The Opera House” – “The Opera House” is a new film by multiple Emmy Award–winning documentary filmmaker Susan Froemke. It surveys a remarkable period of the Metropolitan Opera’s rich history and a time of great change for New York. Drawing on rarely seen archival footage, stills, and recent interviews, the film chronicles the creation of the Met’s storied home of the last 50 years, against the backdrop of the artists, architects, and politicians who shaped the cultural life of New York City in the ’50s and ’60s. “The Opera House” will be shown at 12:55 p.m. on the big screen at the State Theatre.
