WE HAVE A GO FOR THE SCREENING!

We're a go for the charity screening!


We have a date: Saturday, June 23rd;

a time: 1 - 5 pm, with doors opening at 1:45;

a theatre: Pacific Cinematheque;

and a film: "Serenity".

This will be the second annual Serenity Now/Equality Now charity screening. Last year, 47 cities in five countries raised more than $69,000 for Joss's favourite charity, Equality Now, an organization that works to end violence and discrimination against women throughout the world.

This year 50 cities in 10 countries have expressed an interest in taking part and we're hoping to raise $100,000.

So get out your Jayne's hat, tune up your voice and tell all your friends! Dust off your lending set of "Firefly" DVDs. (You don't have a lending set, you say, then invite your friends over to watch it with you.) We want a sellout (210). If you haven't seen "Serenity" on the big screen, you're in for a treat - especially when you see it with a couple of hundred other fans.

We have door prizes! And we're working on a few other things. If you're willing to help out in any way - putting up posters, donating money, time or prizes, please contact me at serenityscreeningvancouver@yahoo.ca. We're looking for sponsors as well as donors. Sponsors & donors will be named, in the handout at the theatre, and in a presentation at the theatre (PowerPoint or other). The more money we get from sponsors, the more money we can give to Equality Now!

Tickets are on sale from members of the Organizing Committee, starting tomorrow, and from the through PayPal here - just click on the "add to cart" icon at the bottom of the page.

Tickets are $13 up to May 31st, $15 after May 31st. There will be a $1 service charge added to the tickets bought through PayPal to cover the cost of the transaction.

We have a lot of work to do between now and June 23rd to sell tickets and get the word out, but we are going to have a great time!

Err. Where can we buy without using Paypal?

If you are local to Vancouver, you can come to a Browncoat event - check out our website link on the right hand side - and purchase tickets from a member of the organising team. We will be selling tickets at any events between now and then. Of if you want to come to the Eighties Restaurant in North Vancouver on Friday nights at 6:30 for BIFF (scifi fans) meetings, there are usually several team members there.

If those don't work for you, e-mail me at serenityscreeningvancouver@yahoo.ca and we can arrange something else - paying by cheque by mail, for instance.

How do we pick up tickets if we've paid by paypal?

Tickets can be picked up at the theatre. Last year, we had a table outside before the doors opened for "will call" ticket pick up. If you live in Vancouver, you can e-mail me at serenityscreeningvancouver@yahoo.ca and we can see what arrangements we can make.
