Jing tsai! A Serenity poster signed by Joss Whedon up for grabs in Melbourne

New Melbourne Browncoats (NMB) are back for their 11th Can’t Stop the Serenity Screening event on Saturday 13th August but it may be the last.

Organiser Christopher explains “The NMB team has been working tirelessly over the years to bring this event to life, but attendance has been waning in the past few years. And this year, ticket sales are lower than ever. So if you’ve been meaning to attend our CSTS screening and have been thinking “well, there’s always next year”, then now is the time to get on board. We’d really like to go out on a high, and not only break even (cost wise) but make a significant donation to our two chosen charities – Equality Now and WIRE.“

WIRE stands for Women’s Information and Referral Exchange and women across Victoria (Australia) contact WIRE for support, information and referrals on issues, such as family relationships and legal issues, domestic/family violence, homelessness and mental health issues.

Hosted by the amazingly funny Ben McKenzie, the fun kicks off at 10am at the Village Roadshow Theatrette at the State Library of Victoria and will include live entertainment, cosplay contest, screening of Serenity and more. There will also be lots of prizes up for grabs in the raffle and auctions (including a Serenity poster signed by Joss Whedon!!) and a lucky attendee will win a $100 Village Gold Class Gift Card.

Tickets and event packages (with swag!) can be pre-purchased online from $25, and a CSTS Passenger Pass ($25) will be available at the door.

They are also planning a second special related event that will be exclusive to CSTS Screening ticket holders that you won’t want to miss!

Please join Christopher and Jen for what could be the final annual Can’t Stop the Serenity Screening event in Melbourne at least for a while and support your fellow Browncoats, plus some great charities.
