Can’t Stop the Serenity San Diego

Just 1 month after our first successful CSTS event of 2011, we are proud to announce Can’t Stop the Serenity San Diego to benefit Equality Now. We will be screening Serenity and the 2011 CSTS intro DVD featuring Joss Whedon (on the DVD, not in person). Local musician Eben Brooks will open the night with a few songs. We’re also going to have a ‘Thank you for donating’ prize drawing, including the grand prize of a 2011 CSTS Global poster signed by Joss Whedon, Nathan Fillion and more! This is your chance to see Serenity on the big screen, hang out with Browncoats from around the world (it is the week of Comic-Con), and get some shiny merchandise, all while supporting Equality Now.

Wednesday, July 20th 8:00 PM

Tickets are now on sale for $15 each at Fandango! Or pick them up at the theater box office. All ticket sales will be handled by the theater/Fandango.

Thank You! Prize Drawing

Those attending the Can’t Stop the Serenity San Diego Event on July 20th will have a variety of ways to give money to Equality Now. The goal of our CSTS events, besides giving you a chance to see Serenity on the big screen, is to raise money and awareness for Equality Now. To say thank you for helping us raise money and awareness, we like to give you something back (or a chance at something).

First off is our Thank You Prize Drawing. For every $2 you donate you will get 1 entry in the drawing and have a chance at 10 different prize packages or the grand prize. You can enter the drawing at our table in the lobby, or from one of our volunteers in the theater. Thank you to our local and global sponsors!
