Sorry the Paypal link isn't working - I'll look into that.

We haven't sold many tickets, so barring a big rush very soon, we're probably going to have to cancel this and effectively lose GPB150 non-returnable deposit on the cinema.

As far as I'm aware there isn't a UK Bristol Browncoat organisation.

Oh my god! I'm the one organising the showing in LEEDS. (which is just as central as Manchester.)

I'm still in talks with the cinema's PR people. I'm so glad there's all this interest. It gives me some extra ammo.

Once i've got a definate answer, I'll let onetruebix know so it can go on that website.

Am so impressed with word of mouth!!!

Cortex and waves obviously work really well.

Wicca - email me (serenity@pettifog.com). If people organise UK screenings (and you need to do it NOW if you are going to - they need months in advance to get the reels via Universal) I will email the 2000 UK members of cantstopthesignal.co.uk.

IF we move the event to June 23rd in the evening, how many of you would 100% guarantee to attend?

I've finally stopped lurking and joined.
I'm in Bristol and was going to try to make the May screening. You mentioned below ticket sales haven't reached the minimum, so perhaps it would be best to move the booking to June? I could then gaurantee at least a handful of attendees besides myself!

MAJOR UPDATE!

Re: May 21st screening of 'Serenity'

Due to a scheduling error, the screening has had to be cancelled. The Cube microplex apologises for any inconvenience.

***

Those of you who bought tickets will get a refund from us very soon; the Cube are sending back our deposit. Once we have that safely in our bank account, refunds will be on their way.

In the mean time, keep June 24th (Saturday) free in your diary if you can. More news soon!

Hello ncr,
thanks for the offer if i do need help i'll give you a holler.

In the meantime i'd like to extend an invite to the shindig i'm organising in LEEDS. There's a thread somewhere on here and also on cantstopthesignal.co.uk.

Hope you can join us.

(May 6th, 2pm, firefly bar, park row.)

I'm based in Bradford and would definately be attending a Leeds June 23rd screening. I'm also willing and able to help in any way I can. I'm best with things that can be done by PC cos I work shifts and am not always around normal business hours. I also run www.browncoatevents.com which I am in the process of re-inventing and could use that to advertise/promote this and any other UK shindig/screening.

I will definately be attending SOMETHING on 23rd June. Not sure what yet! Has anything come of the talk of the London screening? If not I'll try to make it to Leeds and/ or Bristol.

What I want to know is what's going to be happening beyond another viewing of the film (always fun!). Will there be partying? Will there be dressing up and getting tipsy and much silly quoting of Firefly and dancing and carousing and meeting new people and making new friends and ... if the party really gets under way .. making a whole new generation of Firefly fans?!

Surely this is an opportunity not just to get together for a couple of hours but to really make a night to remember!

Cider, thanks for the offer. At the moment i'm waiting on the cinema PR people getting back to me.

We're looking at tickets being about £10 per person, but that's not definate yet.

Also there's plenty of pubs/bars/restaurants around. Once i know for definate about the screen exact time/date I'll let everyone know. If there's enough interest (25+) for something afterwards i'll look at hiring somewhere nearby for everyone to go.

In the meantime i'd like to invite you to the shindig mentioned in the above post. It's got it's own thread somewhere.

May 6th, 2PM, FireFly Bar, Park Row, LEEDS.

All welcome!!!

I love my Captain

Gorram it! I'm going to be in London then at an important meeting I can't miss. Can you let me know when the next shindig you arrange will be?

Thanks for the invite but unfortunately I am working that day so can't make it - I would definately be interested in any other Leeds based shindigs though.

The next after that will (hopefully) be the screening.

I'll try and sort something for later in the summer aswell. Once i've got this one out the way.

I heard someone mention SFX magazine.

Well on the 24th of June some members of the forum are having a private meet-up in Sheffield (We call our selves "Offtopicans" 'cause we post mostly in the off Topic section. Sad, we know )

But most are "scouting" out the city for a good place to meet on the 23rd, so i'll mention them to bring along a copy of Serenity or Firefly just for fun (technically were all fans and watch it many times) Thanks for the heads up

Cheers

Choo

Hey the screening in LEEDS is almost definite.

It's now got it's own thread.

It's at either 10am or midday on Saturday 24th June.

Sheffield browncoats are welcome too. We'd love to meet you.

Checkout the thread!!!

Phillipa,

I hope you were the person I was communicating with... we were discussing Kevin Smith if you are. I was trying to organise London but had a MAJOR computer crash (had to buy a new machine!) and have only just managed to get back online. Is your one still going ahead but now in June? I have lost contact with everyone and can't find the Yahoo Group list we were using to communicate.

Is there anything I can do to help your screening? I had a few media contacts organised.

Hope to hear from you soon.


One day.
One plan.
One army of Browncoats.

On June 23rd, we aim to misbehave.

Hello!

Sadly, when we floated the idea of a June screening in Bristol, we only got maybe four people interested (and I was counting you amongst them). We simply couldn't risk the best part of £300 on booking the cinema on that basis.

Keep hold of those media contacts please , we have plans up our sleeves for something else!
