From the very beginning, Melbourne Browncoats have taken part in the global charity event “Can’t Stop the Serenity”. Since 2006, our local charity events have contributed to the raising of over US$400,000 for Equality Now. In 2010 we’re celebrating the global event’s 5th Anniversary with a shindig that’s going to be bigger and better than ever before!
Saturday 28 August 2010
See Joss Whedon’s “Serenity” and “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-along Blog” on the big screen! This year’s event will also feature raffles & door prizes, charity auction and fantastic Browncoat merchandise. Come in costume!
Doors open at 12:45pm for a 1pm start. Event concludes at 5:15pm
Union Theatre, Melbourne University Parkville (see map below)
Tickets are now only available at the door for $20 (cash only).
This year’s Can’t Stop the Serenity Feature Event will be giving you the opportunity to win some very exciting prizes!
There will be five incredible items up for grabs in this year’s Live Auction. A selection of prizes are listed below, and we’ll be adding a few more soon. Winning bidders must pay in cash at the conclusion of the auctions.
SERENITY POSTER SIGNED BY JOSS WHEDON
This poster was signed by Joss Whedon on the set of Cabin in the Woods in Vancouver in 2009. It measures 11″x17″ (29cm x 43cm) and is signed in silver ink. The poster was obtained directly from Universal Studios in 2005 during a pre-release event in Los Angeles.
This pack is a must for Jayne fans. It features an autographed photo of Adam Baldwin as Jayne, a hand knitted Jayne hat (made with love by Kat, who advises that it’s made of seriously expensive 100% wool hand dyed in Wales, is not machine washable and it will shrink like a shrinkydink if it’s chucked in the wash), plus postcards featuring Adam Baldwin in the original Jayne hat and a stylised Jayne by FireflyStore.net.
Created by Avitech Graphics in California, this amazing piece features Serenity and details her schematics. This is not a poster, it is a reflective, engraved piece of aluminium. It measures 12″x24″, is mounted on black foam core and ready for framing. Photos do not truly convey this stunning piece of art, so check out a sample of Avitech’s work on YouTube.
Catch up on Season 1 of Joss Whedon’s latest foray into Television with this Region 1 set of Dollhouse. Not yet released in Australia, this box set has been signed by Dollhouse stars, Eliza Dushku, Dichen Lachman and Summer Glau.
