Three Countries, Three Screenings

The weekend of July 4-6 sees three shiny screenings in Canada, the United States and England.
First up chronologically is Toronto. The Royal Cinema once again plays host to an afternoon of Serenity, door prizes, and an auction full of unique items. Tickets are only $12.00 in advance and $15.00 at the door. The screening will be followed by a shindig at a nearby pub but RSVPs are neccessary for the shindig.

Albuquerque has a very full day planned on Saturday. Besides shiny shopping, raffles, an auction, a shindig, Serenity, catered dinner available for purchase at the theatre, there is also comedy and music! Comedians Drew Wayne and Genevieve Mueller will open the event and Mikey Mason will play right before the dinner break. Costume are encouraged and anyone who buys their ticket in advance gets a Fruity Oaty bar and other shiny swag! A shindig rounds out the day.

Sunday sees Leicester back for the first time since 2008 and it has blossomed since then! There is Serenity of course, live local music, spoken word and poetry performers, and tons and tons of things to buy – cakes, jewellery, fridge magnets, bags, cunning hats, and badges, to name a few things, as well as some really awesome raffle and competition prizes such as signed original artwork and graphic novels. There is even a teapot with a pretty cunning warmer over it.
The costume competition winners will receive specially engraved trophies, and a photo booth area will help attendees immortalize a great event. Everyone can get a bag of free popcorn too. Like Albuquerque, Leicester is offering something special to those who buy tickets in advance, – an Early Bird Goodie Bag.

Leicester also made a video to promote their event. Take a look after you admire their Jayne and Wash who helped to promote the screening at a recent con!
