Can’t Stop the Serenity!

August 4th, 2009 by sharyn

Thursday night, August 13th at The Riverview (the best movie theater in Minneapolis):

“Can’t Stop The Serenity is the annual global browncoat event featuring Serenity on the big screen with all proceeds to benefit Equality Now, Joss Whedon’s favorite charity. Equality Now is an international non profit organization working to end violence and descrimination against women and girls around the world. The now-annual event began in 2006 when over 40 locations around the globe raised over $60,000 for Equality Now! The 2007 global events topped that with gusto by raising over $100,000 for Equality Now! Minnesota’s participation provided over $2,000 in 2006, and tripled that amount in 2007 by raising $6,160! We raised over $7,200 in 2008!”

Watchmen: Director’s Cut

July 15th, 2009 by sharyn

The director’s cut of the Watchmen movie will be hitting theaters Friday, July 17th, for one week only. And only in four U.S. theaters. Luckily one of them is in the Twin Cities – at Apple Valley’s Carmike 15.

Zack Snyder confirmed again that there will be a limited theatrical release of an extended director’s cut of Watchmen in July, and revealed that the opening title montage featured two deleted shots

Apparently one of the scenes depicts the brutal murder of the original Nite Owl, Hollis Mason. If you can’t make it to the theater this weekend see it on YouTube, or wait for the director’s cut release on DVD and Blu-Ray July 21st.

My Name is Bruce

November 1st, 2008 by sharyn

Oh my love, how I look forward to seeing your beautiful face, and your big chin, on the big screen again. And in person! The glorious Bruce Campbell will be in Minneapolis introducing six screenings of his new movie, My Name is Bruce on December 5th, 6th and 7th. Squeeeee! If you’re too young to know him as Evil Dead’s Ash Williams, you may know him as Sam from the USA Network’s Burn Notice. But there’s so much B-Movie greatness in between.
