Thank you all - hope you enjoyed it!

Hey everyone!

Just wanted to say a Big Damn Thank You (again - yes, I know, I ramble!) to everyone who came along to tonights' screening of our favourite Big Damn Movie, Serenity. All profits from this event will be donated to Equality Now on behalf of the Browncoats of Melbourne. Thank you all for your fantastic support.

Extra special thanks go to all who helped run & promote tonights' event. I would name you all but I don't want to offend anyone by forgetting them. You know who you are and I'm extremely grateful for your help.

Also, without goodies, this would be just another night at the movies. Ummm.... not just any night, but you know what I mean. So, here's a Big Damn Thanks to our sponsors:

  • Dramatix - thanks for putting up with all my questions & problems!
  • The Hub Produtions - check out the upcoming events, it's worth it!
  • DragonWeave Jewerly - shiny, shiny jewelry. Nice stuff!
  • Tilk & The Crew of the Bellflower - Melbourne's own Firefly Fan Film Project
  • UIP Australia - thanks for the shiny mousemats!
Last but not least, big thanks to Emily, Brandon & the great staff of Hoyts Forest Hill Cinemas. Without them & you, the Browncoats of Melbourne, this event would not have happened.

So, how much did we make? I'll let you all know once I've had some sleep & regain the ability to add and subtract again! Keep Flying!

PS: If you couldn't make it tonight, our shiny Serenity mousemats will be available for purchase for $5 (plus postage) via this website as soon as I can set it up. Again, all profits will go to Equality Now. Stay shiny!

PPS : Happy Birthday Joss - you rock!

Door sales available!

Due to popular demand, we will have door sales available tonight for $12 a ticket. If you wish to purchase tickets at the door, please come early & bring change!

See you all there!

The reason we're doing it - Joss in his own words

Here's a video of Joss receiving an award for his work on behalf of Equality Now. While we love Firefly & Serenity, we're also happy to be helping Joss & Equality Now do good works. Enjoy.

"Help! I don't have a credit card! How do I book tickets?"

That's the question that's been asked by a few people, and as someone who didn't have a credit card until recently, I totally understand what you're going through. Unfortunately we're only selling tickets through Dramatix so my advice to you is.....*drumroll*

Get someone with a credit card to buy you a ticket and then pay them back. I'm sure you know -someone- with a credit card that would be happy to help. (I already know of several people who are doing this).

Your name doesn't have to be on the ticket, you just have to have the correct ticket code on the night, and since there's no booking fee you don't have to worry about your friend getting hit over the head with any hidden charges (by us at least, I'm not sure if there are any charges levied by the credit card company).

Alternatively this might be the time for you to sign up for a debit or credit card of your own (no advertising here, just a suggestion!)

If you absolutely, positively cannot purchase online, please contact us ASAP to make alternative arrangements. Please keep in mind that this is a volunteer operation and the reason for using the online ticketing is minimise costs (saving you money & raising more for EN), simplicity and accountability.

Serenity takes off - No turning back now!

Well, here's how it is. We've just gone live on Dramatix - if you have preordered tickets, your accounts will be charged very shortly at which point your tickets will be emailed to the contact email supplied with your order. All future ticket sales will now be processed immediately. If you still haven't ordered, please do so ASAP as there will be no door sales on the night.

All ticket holders will receive a free Serenity mousemat & will go into the draw for some shiny door prizes. Any extra mousemats will be available for purchase for $5 each. Don't forget to dress as your favourite character and bring along some some spare cashy money as we're also lining up some great items for auction - you might just pick up a bargain!

If you'd like to meet some fellow Browncoats before the movie, check out the Serenity Oz forums for details of a pre-movie shindig. Most of all, thank you all for your support but we're not done yet. Please spread the word - Serenity is worth fighting for!!!

Ticket Tally - 111 sold as of 19/6/2006

If you've already got your tickets, well done! If you haven't, buy yours now! The first 150 tickets will receive a shiny Serenity mousemat courtesy of UIP Australia & CSTS Melbourne.
