Happy Birthday Joss Whedon!
To Celebrate Joss' birthday we have 9 Screening events going on this weekend in three countries.
Saturday, June 23 starts off in Gateshead, U.K. at 10 a.m. with Serenity, an auction and an awesome sale of film posters including Cabin in the Woods and Avengers Assemble before everyone heads to a shindig for more fun including a tough Whedonverse quiz!
Gloucester, UK's screening is special as they have a couple of speakers from Equality Now. This is Equality Now's 20th Anniversary so their talk is sure to be interesting! Dr. Horrible is also showing, there is a silent auction and they expect to set up a live link with another CSTS city.
Both UK events will have themed cupcakes!
Across the pond in Canada, Toronto opens their doors at noon. Their Serenity screening is followed by what is always a loud and lively auction with some unique items including a set of nesting dolls that have to be seen to be believed. A shindig rounds out the day.
Down in Norfolk, VA, the Tidewater Browncoats have lots planned in a very short time including Fan Favorite Mikey Mason. Can they squeeze Serenity, Dr. Horrible, Mikey, & some sales all into 4 hours? Go see!
Zipping north of the border, Edmonton starts their event at noon. Their event includes an evil laugh contest, costume contest, Serenity, Dr. Horrible, live auction, and silent auction. This year, the theatre they are renting is offering discounted tickets for CSTS attendees to see Comic Con IV: A Fan's Hope which is showing following the CSTS event.
New York City is offering a screening of Serenity along with a dinner/dance, auction, door prizes and costume contest at the Jing Fong Restaurant in Chinatown. Ticket Sales end on June 21st @ 5PM & will not be available at the door.
The day ends and the new day begins in Boston with the 7th annual midnight showing of Serenity at the Coolidge Theater. Brush up on your trivia. There will be questions!
June 24th has two screenings. Glastonbury, U.K. is showing both Serenity and Dr. Horrible. The CSTS event is part of a larger film festival.
The weekend is bookended at the birthplace of Can't Stop The Serenity. The Portland Oregon Browncoats have a Guild Marathon on Friday June 22nd and the Serenity event on Sunday which includes a special showing of Out of Gas.
