Please join us for our charity screening event to benefit Equality Now featuring

Firefly episode “Out of Gas”

and Joss Whedon’s Serenity

Yes, you read that correctly.  We are thrilled that this year’s Can’t Stop the Serenity-Orange County (CSTS-OC) will include a screening of the Firefly episode “Out of Gas”!!!  This is a very rare opportunity to see Firefly on the big screen, and this episode is the one Joss Whedon has often said is his favorite!    Of course we will also be screening Serenity (Joss Whedon’s first feature film, also known as the Big Damn Movie).

On top of that, we will have live music from The Fallen Stars, a Southern California band fresh off a European tour, whose work includes several great songs inspired by Firefly (visit their website to hear songs, watch videos, and learn about the band).  We will also have a live auction and door prizes, and shiny merchandise for sale!  And all of this fun feels even better because it benefits Equality Now.

Tickets are $15 each.  Advance ticket sales are now closed. Tickets will be sold at our table in the lobby (not at the theater box office), while supply lasts. If you have already purchased your tickets, you may pick them up at our table in the lobby of the theater (not the box office).

If you are not able to attend, but would like to support our cause, we would welcome a donation in any amount (just click on the Donate button).  Thank you so much!

All proceeds of CSTS-OC will go to Equality Now, whose mission is to work for the protection and promotion of the human rights of women and girls around the world.   Working with grassroots women’s and human rights organizations and individual activists since 1992, Equality Now documents violence and discrimination against women and mobilizes international action to support efforts to stop these abuses.  Equality Now is rated 4 stars by Charity Navigator.

“Browncoats” are fans of the television show Firefly (2002, created by Joss Whedon) and the movie Serenity (2005), which continues the Firefly universe in a feature film (Joss Whedon’s first).  Can’t Stop the Serenity is an annual worldwide charity screenings event in which dozens of locations around the world host screenings of Serenity to raise money for Equality Now.  Can’t Stop the Serenity first launched in 2006 and since then has raised more than $800,000 for Equality Now.  You do not have to be a Browncoat to have a great time at Can’t Stop the Serenity!  Each year, while most of the attendees of CSTS-OC are Browncoats, there are always quite a few folks new to Firefly or Serenity who come on out and have a great time.

Starplex Woodbridge Movies 5 is a wonderful venue for CSTS-OC!  They always treat us so well!  And bonus: Parking is free at the shopping center.  The theater has a full service concession stand with popcorn, drinks, $1 hot dogs, candy, nachos, etc.
