And here I thought I was going to break this great story about how Joss Whedon, creator of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Firefly TV series as well as the movie Serenity, and his Browncoats (fans of Firefly and Serenity) are doing a two-day benefit this weekend for Equality Now and the Women's Film Initiative. Then I open the Oregonian this morning and find out they've scooped me all over the cover of their Living section and I think, "Man, this is so unfair. And I can't even complain about it because they're great causes and people will think I'm a self-centered twit. Sheesh!"
So, even though you've probably read it already, head over to the Hollywood Theatre on Friday at 7 pm or Saturday at 1 pm for a screening of the movie Serenity. Additionally, the classic musical episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, "Once More with Feeling," is being screened at midnight at Cinema 21 on NW 21st with $1 per ticket going to Equality Now. Geek out, get your Whedon on and participate in at least one of these events. It should be a hoot!
Details: Screening of Serenity at the Hollywood Theatre. 7 pm Friday (6/22), 1 pm Saturday (6/23); $13 advance, $18 at the door. Hollywood Theatre, 4122 NE Sandy Blvd.
Screening of "Once More with Feeling" at Cinema 21. Midnight Friday and Saturday (6/22-23); $10 with $1 per ticket benefiting Equality Now. Cinema 21, 616 NW 21st Ave.
