In December 2006, the inaugural presentation of the Met’s Live in HD series of movie-theater transmissions was seen on 98 screens in four countries. Today, The Met: Live in HD reaches 2,000 screens in 70 countries on six continents. Recognized as an international phenomenon, the series has garnered a Peabody Award, two Emmys, and extraordinary international praise from audiences and critics alike. As the only performing arts institution with an ongoing global series of this scale, the Met has become the world’s leading provider of alternative cinema content.
