Can’t Stop the Serenity returns for its 6th year in Portland, sponsored by the PDX Browncoats, Things from Another World, and Dark Horse Comics. Joss Whedon’s fan favorite, Serenity, will be on the big screen again, joined by another fan hit, Dr. Horrible’s Sing-A-Long Blog. This year’s screening marks the return to the Hollywood Theatre on August 20th.
The PDX Browncoats will be joined this year by special guest, Patric Reynolds, artist for the one-shot comic, Serenity: Float Out. Patric will be discussing his work, as well as taking questions submitted prior to the event via Twitter (use hashtag #CSTSPDX) and the PDX Browncoats Facebook page, and from the audience.
Can’t Stop the Serenity (CSTS) is a unique opportunity to indulge your geeky side while doing some good. Since 2006, fans have organized worldwide screenings of Joss Whedon’s Serenity to raise funds and awareness for Equality Now in their work for the protection and promotion of the human rights of women around the world. The Portland’s event will also support Raphael House and National Alliance on Mental Illness – Multnomah. A portion of the money raised at this year’s CSTS will go to supporting these organizations.
As part of this year’s screenings, the Browncoats will be collecting in-kind donations for Raphael House. There is a high need for lip and foot cares items such as lip balm, nail files and clippers, and foot creams. A complete list of all suggested donations can be found at their website under Personal Care. Your generous donations are worth up to three raffle tickets on the day of the screenings. The continued support of community donations makes their programs possible. The current state of the economy means that costs for providing food, clothing, and personal items to the survivors and their children living in shelter has risen dramatically.
Serenity and Dr. Horrible’s Sing-A-Long Blog both play at the Hollywood Theater, 4122 N.E. Sandy Boulevard, Portland on August 20th. Doors open at 7 pm. Tickets are $12 in advance, and $15 at the door. Buy your tickets now in the PDX Browncoats General Store.
