As temperatures rise in North America, cities in Canada and the United States are adding to the heat. (Luckily all events are air-conditioned!)
On Friday night Halifax, Nova Scotia is showing Seasons 1-3 of the Guild. Tickets are only $5.00 and attendees will have their names added to the door prize draw at the main event in September - bonus chances to win some great stuff! Concessions will be available.
Down the coast Can't Stop the Serenity is returning to Washington, D.C. on Saturday with doors opening at 11:00 AM.
This year's event includes Serenity & Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along-Blog, a costume contest for best dressed Firefly/Serenity character & a second costume contest for best dressed as any character from any Joss Whedon production. There will also be raffles, door prizes, and a silent auction!
In what may be a first for any CSTS event, Washington is hosting a small ensemble from the Washington Metropolitan Gamer Symphony Orchestra who will perform several musical pieces arranged just for the show! It will be one of the Orchestra's first ever small ensemble performances. As of July 15th, all tickets were sold for this event.
Crossing over to the U.S. West Coast, Seattle is putting on not one but two screenings of Serenity on Saturday.
The afternoon show will have rounds of their very own homemade GeekBingo to entertain the audience, and the evening "Special Hell" show will feature Vixy & Tony as preshow enterainment. The "Special Hell" version includes Hecklevision texting-to-screen, so that witty comment you've always wanted to make when Mal shows up in a dress can now be politely shared with the whole theater (this is Seattle, after all).
There will be a costume contest for each screening and a ful menu and bar at the dinner theatre so why not go for both screenings?
Sunday, July 20 is the day that Philadelphia hosts a Serenity screening at the Rotunda. Tickets are only $10.00 in advance, $15.00 at the door but judging by last year when they sold out before the day - it's best to get your tickets now! Musician Sean Faust will be performing at this event and rumour has it there will also be ice planets for sale.Continue Reading...
