Utah Browncoats bring the ‘Verse to Salt Lake City

The Utah Browncoats are roaring back into action with the first Can’t Stop The Serenity screening event of 2017.

The event is on Saturday June 10th and is the second time they’ve used a split venue with the movie screening of Serenity at Brewvies from 1pm-3pm and a separate after-party next door at Legends Sports Pub from 3pm-6pm where there will be food, auctions, prize drawing, and a cosplay contest.

Organiser Halo says “We did this for the first time last year and the response was overwhelmingly positive, and we had much more time to relax and socialise together”.

One exciting addition to this year’s screening is the introduction of the Browncoat ‘Guilds of the ‘Verse’.

Halo explains “Last summer the Utah Browncoats won the bid to host the prestigious national event, the Browncoat Ball. It was held in August in downtown Salt Lake City, and shiny people from all around the country came to have fun at our Shindig.

One of the things that we created for the Ball is that we expanded on the concept of Guilds, two of which are canon, for the Ball attendees. So the Guilds of the ‘Verse became a Utah Browncoat addition to the fan lore and fabric of the Firefly / Serenity universe. You can read more about the Guilds here

After the Ball, we started doing Guild inductions at our events and even brought them to the Salt Lake Comic Con FanX event in February. Since the response was highly positive, we are continuing the tradition of Guild inductions at CSTS, and will even have Guild themed swag bags and prizes, in addition to our costume contest and live and silent auctions.”

Proceeds from this event will benefit Equality Now and Kids Need to Read and tickets are available here
