Are Some Theater Owners Taking Advantage of CSTS Screenings ?

Tuesday 17 June 2008, by Webmaster

Hi Phyllis,

Serenity will be playing at the Clay Theater on Friday June 20th and Saturday June 21st at midnight. These two screenings have nothing to do with Cant Stop The Serenity or Equality Now.

Months ago, I called the Clay to ask why they chose the third weekend in June to show Serenity (which is the weekend we’ve done CSTS the past two years) and the manager said "We know a lot of people will come and we can make a lot of money". When I asked about possibly working with Equality Now, the manager just laughed. I just hope people don’t go to this thinking they are supporting Equality Now. Like I’ve said before, having other screenings of Serenity is not a bad thing. I just don’t appreciate theaters being sneaky about it. There are 11 other months they can show Serenity but all of a sudden there are 6 bay area screenings in the last two weeks of June? What’s up with that?

San Francisco’s 3rd Annual Cant Stop The Serenity:
A charity movie Screening of Joss Whedon’s "Serenity"
to raise money for Equality Now.

Saturday, June 21st 6-11pm
