Can’t Stop the Serenity returns for its 8th year in Portland, sponsored by the PDX Browncoats, Dark Horse Comics, Things From Another World, and McMenamin’s Bagdad Theater. Joss Whedon’s fan favorite, Serenity, will be on the big screen again, joined by an episode of Nerd Fight and Dr. Horrible’s Sing Along Blog. This year’s screening will be Sunday, June 23th, 2013 at the historic McMenamin’s Bagdad Theater.
Can’t Stop the Serenity (CSTS) is a unique opportunity to indulge your geeky side while doing some good. Since 2006, fans have organized worldwide screenings of Joss Whedon’s Serenity to raise funds and awareness for Equality Now in their work for the protection and promotion of the human rights of women around the world. This year’s event will also support Raphael House of Portland, a multifaceted domestic violence agency dedicated to ending intimate partner violence for good. For more information on how we will be supporting these organizations, please visit our website.
