Serenity Screenings: Have you got your tickets?

Serenity: coming to the big screen near you!
Have you ever seen Serenity, the fantastic Joss Whedon film from his short-run TV series Firefly, at the cinema? If not, you don't know what you're missing! But fear not, over the next few weeks cities all over the world will be screening Serenity as part of the 'Can't Stop The Serenity' series of events.

Can't Stop The Serenity?
Started in 2006, this is an annual event around the time of Joss Whedon's birthday where volunteer organisers arrange and screen Serenity to raise money for Equality Now:

"Equality Now was founded in 1992 to work for the protection and promotion of the human rights of women around the world. Working with national human rights organizations and individual activists, Equality Now documents violence and discrimination against women and mobilizes international action to support their efforts to stop these human rights abuses."

Joss Whedon is a firm supporter of Equality Now and to find out why please watch his Equality Now Acceptance Speech.

Where can you take part?
There is a full list of screening on the CSTS website so please check it out and see if there is one near you. Denver, CO, USA is already sold out but there are tickets left for many others. This weekend alone there are over 30 screenings, so make sure you are not left out! Apart from seeing Serenity in all it's widescreen glory and supporting Equality Now, all the screenings have great prize draws, entertainment and a chance to mix with some of the 'Verse's most friendly people - the Browncoats. I've got my tickets - have you?
