"Time for some thrillin' heroics!"

You've waited all year, hoping it would come again. Well, you got what you asked for, Browncoats!

The Edmonton Browncoats present:

The Can't Stop the Serenity Screening
in support of Equality Now

Saturday, June 23 at 4pm
at the
Metro Cinema
(Zeidler Hall, Main Floor of the Citadel Theatre Complex, 9828 101A Ave.)

Tickets are $10 in advance, $15 at the door.

That's right, Browncoats! Its that time of year again, time to show our support for the BDH, Joss Whedon, and especially the fine, hard-working folks at Equality Now.

A few points of interest...

Tickets: Online sales are over; the only way to get an advance ticket now is to head over to Happy Harbor Comics, the downtown location. They'll have tickets on sale right up to 1pm, at the $10 price. After that...well, you can't say I didn't warn you, right?

CSTS T-shirts: Pre-sales are over for the Can't Stop the Serenity t-shirts. If you didn't get a chance to order yours, that is a shame; these are beautiful shirts, as you can see here. But never say Captain Brent doesn't look out for you! We have ordered a small number of extras, which will go on sale at Happy Harbor just as soon as they reach this fair city of ours. When, you ask? Well...

Update: The t-shirts are here! If you pre-ordered, and want yours prior to the screening, email me and we can try to set a time. If you didn't pre-order and you want one, bring $20 to the screening and it shall be yours. But get there early; I didn't bring in many extras, so if you want the right size...

Door Prizes: I know, I know. You guys would all come just to watch the movie again and help out Equality Now. You're not interested in winning prizes, too...what? Oh, you are. Ah, well, it's a good thing I have some then, or this would be awkward.
