16th Annual
Can’t Stop the Serenity Pittsburgh

Saturday, July 31, 2021


The Rivers & Bridges Brigade of the Pennsylvania Browncoats, Geek Frontiers and Jump Cut Theater are proud to present the 16th annual Can’t Stop the Serenity Pittsburgh.  This year’s event will feature another screening of Serenity Under the Stars on Saturday, July 31 in Allegheny County's South Park, with rain dates of Saturday, August 7 and Sunday, August 8, if necessary. The 2005 sci-fi classic Serenity will be screened outdoors in a field at sundown for a true "picnic and a movie" experience. Attendees are asked to bring their own blankets or chairs, as well as their own food and beverages. (Alcoholic beverages are prohibited by order of Allegheny Parks.) There will be raffles, including a shiny "door prize" and a special raffle for those who are seeing the movie for the first time. There will also be games of an outdoor recreational variety, and plenty of opportunities for Browncoats to socialize before the "Big Damn Movie." 

All donations for admission must be made electronically prior to the event. For a minimum $15 donation, Browncoats will receive 15 raffle tickets, an entry in the “door-prize” raffle (and first-timers raffle, if appropriate) and an invitation to the screening. The exact time and location of the screening will be sent electronically 24 hours before the event to those who donated (just like London's "Secret Cinema").  

For those who aren't attending the event but would still like to enter the raffles, there is also a "raffle-only" option to purchase 20 raffle tickets online for $15. (Raffle tickets will be available for purchase at the event in addition to being available online.)

All proceeds from this year’s event will benefit Equality Now and the Women’s Center & Shelter of Greater Pittsburgh
