Nerd god Joss Whedon is busy making the highly anticipated, blockbuster Avengers film. Unfortunately for fans of the Buffy and Dollhouse creator, that means theyre in for a Whedon drought until his take on the Marvel superheroes isn't due for release until summer 2012.
Lucky for them, Cant Stop the Serenity is this weekend.
Its a double screening of Whedons cult classic space western Serenity (the film continuation of his TV series Firefly) with a bonus viewing of his musical tragicomedy Dr. Horribles Sing-Along Blog.
The Arizona Browncoats a group of diehard Whedonites host the event, which includes a costume contest and raffle. All proceeds from the event benefit womens rights organization Equality Now and Kids Need to Read, which is based in Mesa.
Sun., Sept. 18, 2 & 6 p.m., 2011
