We're thrilled to partner with some of the world's most renowned and revered institutions to help us bid a fond farewell to this iconic series."

"We are proud and a little overwhelmed by the interest and enthusiasm from these prestigious cultural organizations, and grateful for the opportunity it's created for us to give back to our amazing fans who have been there from the beginning." adds Matthew Weiner.

"This series of events is an extraordinary tribute to Matthew Weiner's vision and the work of all those involved with Mad Men," said Kevin Beggs, Chairman, Lionsgate Television Group. "From the very beginning, our partners at AMC have supported the series with tremendous creativity, innovation and passion, and we're deeply gratified to be part of this grand celebration."
