Re-posting this release for my favorite local charity event....
PDX Browncoats present:
'Can't Stop the Serenity' 2009
Saturday, June 27, 2009
616 NW 21st Ave
The PDX Browncoats -- a local nonprofit group comprising fans of Joss Whedon’s "Firefly" -- are gearing up for their 4th-annual "Can’t Stop the Serenity" charity screening of "Serenity" to benefit Equality Now.
Equality Now works to end violence and discrimination against women and girls around the world through the mobilization of public pressure.
Over the last three years, the Portland screening effort alone has raised over $28,000 for Equality Now. The screenings started in Portland, and have since become a global phenomenon -- raising more than $250,000 for Equality Now since the first round of screenings in 2006.
For the 4th-annual CSTS, we're returning to Cinema 21 with two screenings:
1. Afternoon screening
Saturday, June 27
Doors open at 3 p.m., movie starts around 4 p.m.
Tickets: $10 advance, $12 day-of-show [ purchase online ]
2. Late-night "Special Hell" screening
(21 and older, with beer and wine for sale)
Saturday, June 27
Doors open at 10:30 p.m., movie starts around 11:30 p.m.
Tickets: $12 advance, $14 day-of-show [ purchase online ]
Details: Have you ever wanted to shout your favorite lines at the screen? Tell the actors to watch out? Warn Wash before that crucial moment when he meets his fate? This is your chance! The "Special Hell" screening allows fans to poke a little fun at their favorite Joss Whedon film.
That's not all. We're also teaming with the Gypsy Restaurant & Velvet Lounge across the street to bring you a pub quiz, costume contest, and "Dr. Horrible’s Sing-a-Long Blog Karaoke"!
Come to the early screening, stay for the fun at the Gypsy, and come back to have your say at the second show!
