Two Cities Celebrate Can’t Stop the Serenity Milestones!

This week we have two big Can’t Stop the Serenity multi-event celebrations on opposite sides of the world!

It all starts this Thursday in Minneapolis at the Riverview Theater with the first of 3 nights of Can’t Stop the Serenity. Minneapolis was part of the first CSTS in 2006 and has held events every year since, making this year extra special as they celebrate 10 years.

The Thursday night will feature a raffle and Dr. Horrible's Sing-A-Long Blog* in addition to Serenity on the big screen. But not to fret if you can’t make the Thursday night event as they will be screening Serenity again both on Friday and Saturday night at 11.30pm. Tickets are cash only at the door and cost $10 for Thursday’s event and only $3 for either the Friday or Saturday screenings. There will also be special 10th Anniversary tshirts for sale. For more event information please visit their website. All proceeds go to Equality Now.

We then cross to the other side of the globe to Perth, Australia on Saturday where the Perth Browncoats celebrate their 5th year of Can’t Stop the Serenity events with two shindigs! They begin with an all ages screening at the State Library of Western Australia where the doors open at 3.30pm so you have time to get some raffle tickets and merchandise before Serenity rises again on the big screen. After the screening, there’s an over 18’s shindig at the Brass Monkey Hotel so you can socialise with fellow Browncoats.

Dressing to theme is strongly encouraged at both events and there will be prizes. Tickets to the screening are $20 each, and $15 for the shindig or you can buy tickets to both for just $30. They are available to purchase online here, and you’ll want to get yours quick as the first 200 will receive a gift bag full of goodies on arrival. For all event updates keep an eye on their event page. All profits from these events will be donated to Equality Now and Living Proud WA.

If these events aren’t local to you, have you checked our Find an Event page? Registration for 2015 events is now closed but it’s not too early to start planning for next year! You can find all the essential info here.

Up next Fairfax!

We start off on Saturday with the Pennsylvania Browncoats Rivers and Bridges Brigade proudly celebrating 10 years of Can't Stop the Serenity events in Pittsburgh. The doors of the historic Hollywood Theater open at 5pm where the evening kicks off with games, raffle ticket and merch sales followed by an accoustic performance by Sean Faust, his third CSTS event this year! And of course Serenity on the big screen.

The event at the Seattle Centre will include a costume contest, silent auction, merchandise for sale, Serenity on the big screen and the Ariel Ambulance nearby for photo ops.

Beware the Monsters at Can’t Stop the Serenity Gaffney This Week!

This week’s Affiliate event is something a little different and just goes to show how varied Can’t Stop the Serenity fundraisers are.

It’s Can’t Stop the Serenity Gaffney at MonsterCon! As we mentioned this event is a bit more unusual as it’s solely a raffle. Prizes include a copy of Serenity: Leaves on the Wind signed by Summer Glau, Done the Impossible DVD, Firefly-inspired music CDs and a hat that when you walk down the street in it, people know you’re not afraid of anything. Tickets are just a dollar each and all proceeds go to Equality Now. You can find them in the vendors area, so make sure you drop buy and buy plenty for your chance to win lots of shiny.

MonsterCon runs from 23-26th July and is a convention for lovers of comic books, toys, and films, and also pays tribute to historical monsters that evolved into both the sci-fi and horror genres.

The DVD, CDs and cunning hat came courtesy of our 2015 Sponsors Pack which is available to all event cities and is so fully of shiny! Georges Jeanty even drew in every copy of Serenity: Leaves on the Wind donated by Dark Horse. Please visit our sponsors page to see our amazing partners without whom events would be a little less shiny.

If these events aren’t local to you, have you checked our Find an Event page? There’s just over a week left to register an event for 2015, you can find all the essential info here.

Up next Pittsburgh and Seattle.
