We’ll be gathering in Richmond this weekend to share in CSTS Los Angeles, with special guests Joss Whedon, Felicia Day and Michael Fairman (Niska).
And what an event it will be! Taking place on Saturday, June 25th at Hollywood’s Harmony Gold Theater, this screening of Serenity will also include appearances by actor Michael Fairman (Adelei Niska), from ‘Firefly’, the short lived television series that inspired the cult favorite film, as well as long time Whedon-verse regular Felicia Day (Dr. Horrible’s Sing-a-long Blog, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Dollhouse). Even film maker, and fan favorite, Joss Whedon will be there along with Jessica Neuwirth, the Founder of Equality Now and Amanda Sullivan, the Director of the Women’s Action Network. There will be a presentation followed by a brief Q&A before the screening of Serenity and Dr. Horrible’s SIng Along Blog..
Fortunately, though this screening is already sold out, fans not able to attend are still invited to enjoy the event via the internet. ComiCenter LIVE, the online podcast talk show that focuses on the comic book and entertainment industries, will be broadcasting live video from the event, interviewing attendees and special guests, and capturing the reactions from the crowd on hand.
“We share a love of Joss Whedon and his work in both film and comics with the California Browncoats.” Remarked Atom! Freeman, one of ComiCenter LIVE’s hosts, “When we heard that they had sold every available ticket and had to turn fans away, we figured we could do what we do best, ask questions and broadcast the answers live.”
More details are coming around how to watch the event live via the web (check out the event schedule here).
If you’d like to join us in Richmond to watch, just join the forum and send a PM to Mick (who will send out the details). Or you can join us on Chat or Twitter! We’ll be tuning in on Sunday from around 11am.
