Can't Stop the Serenity is happening in Seattle again!
Wayward Coffeehouse, our shiny Browncoat haven, has stepped up and volunteered to let us host our event on TWO nights; Friday and Saturday, August 24th & 25th from 6:00 pm to 10:00 pm.
There is no charge for admission this year (however, donations to help cover the cost of the movie permit are cheerfully welcomed). Just come and bring your desire to see Joss Whedon’s 2005 sci-fi movie based on the TV series, Firefly, and a healthy appetite for fun and Wayward’s wonderful coffee and sandwiches.
You will be able to pick up T-shirts, our brand-new lanyards, pint glasses, and more. There will be raffles and fun for the whole family (the movie is rated PG-13).
Festivities start at 6 p.m. with Geek Bingo! The movie starts at 8. Seating is limited, so get there early.
Proceeds go to Equality Now, Northwest Harvest, and Seattle Browncoats Charities to help us support other organizations throughout the year.
What is Can't Stop the Serenity?
Can’t Stop the Serenity is here to support Equality Now. Since 2006, we have raised over $600,000 for Equality Now and other charities. Organized entirely by volunteers, Can’t Stop the Serenity is a unique opportunity to indulge your geeky side while doing some good.
Once a year, we join together around the globe and host charity screenings of Serenity as well as many other festive events. We raise money to give to Equality Now and other worthy causes. Basically, we convene to watch a movie. Not a bad way to support charity, huh?
Yet, we’re not just about raising money – it’s more than that. It is true that we give aid to Equality Now and an ever growing number of charities. However, we also gather together in Browncoat fellowship to keep the signal strong for Firefly, Serenity and of course, for Joss Whedon and his ever growing body of work.
We share the ideal that people should “aim to misbehave,” if it absolutely means doing the right thing. We hold true that anyone can make a difference, and no effort is insignificant. Further we believe that a government shouldn’t destroy the rights of its citizens, regardless of sex. Basically, we watch our shows, support our causes and allow our voices to be heard because we live in countries which allow us to do so. But we realise that there are other people out there who can not do what we can do.
And that is what we do – we aim to do good works.
