Can't Stop the Serenity @ the Genesee Theatre

Calling all Browncoats! Come to Can't Stop the Serenity, a special screening of Serenity hosted by the Chicagoland Browncoats. This is a charity event, with all proceeds going to Equality Now (Joss Whedon's charity) and the House of the Good Shepherd (a local Chicago women's shelter). This year we're going to screen Dr. Horrible's Sing A Long Blog as well. We're planning a silent auction and a costume contest too, so come dressed as your favorite Whedonverse character!

Tickets are available here:

http://csts2013.brownpapertickets.com/

 

*someone said the price of the event wasn't clear so I added it*
The price of admission goes to the charities we support. Thanks and see you on Saturday!

    A truly nice fundraiser, thanks to all the volunteers for your hard work. I had a great time and you can count me in as one of the crew!

    My first time too, looking forward to meeting you-all. Debuting my new "Sam" character. Can't wait!

    Wish there had been more folks at the theater (for the charity part), but our group enjoyed it. It was a lot of fun to see the movie on the big screen after so many years.

    Hi. When will the auction take place? Before the movies, in between, or after? I'm trying to decide which metra train to take. Thanks!

    September 13, 2013

    • Angel M.

      Whoops, never mind. Just saw that it's 5-7:05 for the silent auction & 7:30 for the live one. Got to remember to read BEFORE posting. ;)

      yeah, we have a tight schedule this year so we can make sure everyone can get the metra home!

      Correction, our fabulous co-organizer posted this for our groups (not me!). I did post it for our new steampunk group in Lake County (anyone from this group is welcome to join any of our groups, if you're interested since we have some Firefly fans in all of them)... http://www.meetup.com...­

    This will be my first event with the group. How will I identify our group, assuming that many other people will be there? Or is my assumption incorrect?

      Also, look for the jerk in the giant red lab coat. If you see him then your in right place.

      September 6, 2013

    • Sandra S.

      Yeah that guy in the red lab coat is totally...horrible...

    I have some exciting news folks. At this year's CSTS, we will have an exclusive video created only for the Chicagoland Browncoats. It will only be shown at our event and nowhere else. It will not be on youtube or at any other CSTS event. Make sure you get your tickets so you can see it for yourself!
