Plenty happening around the world, but the part you need to know about right now is that the first big run of “Can’t Stop the Serenity” screenings begin this week. Big-screen showings of Joss Whedon’s immortal “Serenity” are happening in 52 cities on three continents, with all proceeds going to Equality Now. Over $160,000 has been raised in previous years, and this year we aim to set a record. Some of the screenings have raffles and giveaways, some have special guests (Dark Horse’s Scott Allie and Sierra Hahn and Amanda Sullivan Director of Equality Now’s Women’s Action Network in Portland, Tim Minear in Dallas/Fort Worth, Cedric from the Bedlam Bards in Dallas and Houston, Buffy artist Jo Chen in Arlington, and a video greeting from Jewel Staite in Vancouver, so far) and all of them have a blast. Here’s the site for more info: Can’t Stop the Serenity.
Please note that not all showings of “Serenity” are for charity; some theaters are apparently taking advantage of the event to get a little business. Check the list at the official site to make sure you’re going to a charity event.
“Serenity” isn’t the only cult-favorite to be getting some love. “Hiatus” got a shout-out over at Ominous Knife, and we appreciate it. Get the word out, everyone! It ain’t over yet.
