Misbehavin’ in Albuquerque

MouldsThe Albuquerque Browncoats are very pleased to be hosting Can’t Stop the Serenity 2016 at the marvelous KiMo Theatre on Saturday, July 9th 2016. The KiMo is a New Mexico historic landmark built in 1927 in a “Pueblo Deco” (Art Deco + Pueblo Revival) style, which is very “Browncoaty”! The theatre has been lovingly restored and now features state-of-the-art projection system and surround sound that really shows the Big Damn Movie in all its glory!

The Albuquerque Browncoats have really outdone themselves this year with an incredible array of Firefly merchandise and highly collectable raffle items. The pre-show at 6:00pm will be opened by local nerdy comics, Genevieve Mueller and Joe Quesada (these two will also be emcees for the event throughout the night) and will feature Con Man comedy videos – they were granted permission by show creators PJ Haarsma and Alan Tudyk!

After a dinner break served at the on-site concessions, they are showing Serenity at 7:30pm, followed by a costume contest, auction, and raffles from 9:30pm-11:00pm.

All proceeds go to their chosen charities – Equality Now (75%) and University of New Mexico Children’s Hospital (25%).

Co-captains Charlie Fitch and Johanna Morganstern, will be steering Albuquerque’s CSTS for the 4th year. They are both longtime Firefly fans and love putting on a mighty fine shindig for their fellow Browncoats, with able assistance from their crew: Al, Andy, Celeste, Christie, Colleen, Craig, Dawn, Geneva, Glenda, Jessica, Melissa, Nance, Richard, and Rob. Charlie says “We are proud to have helped raise money for such great charities for so many years. Together, we are mighty!”

Be sure to read the whole thing as it starts out a little off-topic. Here’s the link: http://aplaceformystuff1.blogspot.com/2015/07/ten-years-of-cant-stop-serenity-right.html It is worthy of sharing with the other CSTS cities, because the tribute in the conclusion applies to us all!”
