Can't Stop the Serenity is a charity screening of Joss Whedon's Serenity with aid going to Equality Now.
Equality Now works for equal rights and opportunities for women around the world.
Serenity is a 2005 space western written and direction by Joss Whedon, and is intended to wrap-up the story lines of the TV series Firefly, as well as standing as a complete story on it's own. You do not need to be familiar with Firefly to enjoy the film.
Set in 2518, Serenity is the story of the captain and crew of a cargo ship. The captain and first mate are veterans of the Unification War, having fought on the losing side. Their lives of petty crime are interrupted by a psychic passenger who harbors a dangerous secret.
Serenity, and the Firefly television series which spawned it, has gained a cult following amongst it's fans, known colloquially as Browncoats. This charity screening is fittingly organised by the Melbourne Browncoats, as part of the Can't Stop the Serenity global event.
Genre: Action Sci-fi
Tickets: $18 online or $20 at the door (cash only)
The screening is followed by Dr Horrible's Singalong Blog and other fun activities.
