FireflyFirefly - "Serenity" Movie - A Boston Theater Report
Saturday 1 October 2005, by Webmaster
Loews Boston Common
654-seater with about 80-90 people ranging from 20-something’s to 50-ish - seemed to be pretty equally split male/female. I’d say this was a pretty good turnout for a Friday first showing since this theater has a policy to not allow school-age kids in before 2:30.
Only a couple of fairly non-obnoxious ads. Stuck among them was one for PRDPJ - part trailer, part interviews, part promotion for enjoytheshow.com (Win Your Way to Hollywood contest).
Trailers: AFLUX HPOT4 ZORR2 SAW2 JARHD DOOM
No reaction to any that I noticed.
I saw the episodes of Firefly that aired, enjoyed them and was disappointed when it was canceled. I haven’t seen any episodes since either on TV or DVD. I liked the movie a lot. It was action-packed, funny, sad, scary and there were some surprises (to me anyway since I’ve refrained from reading any of the FRFLY threads). No one need have seen the TV show to enjoy the movie. About a third of the audience stayed thru to the end of the credits. You don’t have to unless you like reading them - there was nothing else to stay for.
Snacks: Extra large popcorn and soda - free because I had a birthday coupon. I rarely go to a movie on opening day but couldn’t pass up the free snacks since I had the day off anyway.
