Calling all Central Scotland Browncoats!
Comicgirl spoke to the GFT cinema and we could book the cinema on the Sunday (June 25th - we know but hey!). We need numbers before we take any action - what would be really good would be 100 people willing to pay £10 each!

Maybe that's asking a lot, but that's the situation we are in! So get posting and start to grab your mates!

PS. Comicgirl is going to speak to Cineworld tomorrow too, but I thought it best to get this post up asap!

I'm figuring people just ain't all that interested. As I've posted on a couple of threads, SerenityinScotland and I are trying to organise a showing for Glasgow, and we've approached both the GFT and Cineworld, and they're both willing, but in order to book we'd need an idea of numbers and they'd need to know so they can secure the rights to show the film again. But so far there's been no response. Looks like the Glasgow screening could end up being a dvd and a big tv...

Yeah, I've posted on the yahoo firefly uk list trying to drum up support for Glasgow, but so far no luck.

Ach, we can keep trying for a week or so, right? You never know!

(Is there a big tv with dvd in Glasgow?!)

Yo!
I just posted on both the Glasgow and Edinburgh University Sci-Fi/Fantasy Societies boards promoting the screening (well, Edinburgh as soon as they let me join the board ). I put my 'references' as cantstoptheserenity.com and this site. Wasn't sure whether to put cantstopthesignal.co.uk down instead, but I feel this place gives a better flavour of the 'verse for anyone who was curious. I asked any interested people to post on the threads I created so they are worth keeping an eye on.

I'll stick the Edinburgh link up when it happens!

One big thing to let people know is that it's for charity. A lot of people who wouldn't normally be interested will suddenly pitch in if you let them know what a great cause Equality Now is.

plus most of the folks who met up for shindigs in Glasgow post on this site- http://www.serenitymovie.org and also on http://www.cantstopthesignal.co.uk.

May be worth posting on there as well. We have had a couple of shidigs which were great.

Could you maybe help us out and post on www.serenitymovie.org? I took a look at it but couldn't quite work out the format, thats probably my own fault tho! We are already on www.cantstopthesignal.co.uk but not really being overwhelmed with replies! Can I ask how many people were at your previous shindigs?
Thanks!

PS. We are looking at the Sunday, not the Saturday!

What's the intended date for this? It really ought to be lsited as pre-planning on Can't Stop The Serenity, since people often discover these things right from that site.

Firefly bar is actually called Rufus T Firefly's (!) and is on Hope Street. I've never actually been, just stumbled across the name on Google. It's probably a complete dump...so I will have a look before June 23rd.

I'm curious - how many people do we need to say on this thread that they will go before the screen is actually booked? Cos I'll bet that more people will come once we have a definite date and screen...?

Yo!
Your numbers are prob about right, there might be a couple more browncoats over on cantstopthesignal.co.uk including some rascal called Euan who was confusing people for a while. We are now going for Cineworld as a venue - they can offer us an 80 seat cinema for cheaper and they were apparently nicer human beings. I think a decision is going to get made before Friday, so we can start getting the word out if it's go...
The idea of Forbidden Planet is a good one - also maybe the city centre video stores (as movie fans should be aware of 'Serenity'), plus any big stores that might be kind enough to display a charity flier. I thought maybe if I went and begged Borders/Waterstones they might let me slap one up in the Sci-fi books department. Maybe the same idea with Virgin/HMV for dvd sections. The worst they can do is say no right?

Well, hope we get enough people! Really think that once the cinema is booked and there's specifics on time and place etc that more people will think, hey, sounds gd!

Talking of specifics, a few people have asked me about times - what cinema time suits people the best, I'm guessing evening?

I'd be extremely interested in attending this, but as I am in Edinburgh and have to leave for a 4 day trip v. early on the Monday it would depend on the timing. If it was early to midafternoon I would definitely try to be there, but an evening event would be impossible I'm afraid.

Bonus points to Kispexi - I heard about this on her LJ.

Signed up specifically to add me and Him Indoors to the long list, if this is still going ahead - I have an appointment at three, but I should be able to make it to an evening screening.

It'd be my first time seeing Serenity on the big screen - I'm one of those dirty 'Oh! Whedonverse for £19.99 in Virgin Megastores, you say?' converts, and I didn't get a chance to see the film the first time around.

I still want a screening though! I'm going to get a gorram screening in Glasgow if it kills me! I'm going to go and meet this woman in person this time. So we are off for now, but I'll be back!!
