    I know that there are people here who are Firefly fans, or people who know Firefly fans...

    Do any of you (or your friends) have information on where Serenity will be opening? As in, what theaters around the Bay Area?

    I've been having a heck of a time figuring this out, which is odd...

    There will be a midnight premiere at the Metreon in SF, I believe.

    That was the one and only reference I was able to find, and finding that wasn't as easy as I thought it should be.

    I don't suppose you'd know of any other venues? I'd love to see it at the Metreon, but it's a bit of a long drive back home at 2:30 in the morning, and many of my friends have to drive back over to Santa Cruz on top of that.

    Is anyone here planning on going to one of the premieres?

    I get it now.

    Regular movie times aren't posted until under a week beforehand.

    I've gotten so used to Star Wars and LotR movies, where the showtimes are announced and tickets go on sale farther in advance, that I didn't realize that wasn't how it was always done! [face_blush]

    Hey,

    A bunch of us from SFFF will be attending the midnight screening at Metreon. But if you want more info, try joining the SF Browncoats yahoo! groups:

    SF Browncoats and/or check out it's South Bay Countepart:

    Silicon Gulch Browncoats

    I hope this helps! I already saw this at a press screening, and will be seeing it again Tuesday night. :D This movie sooooooo rocks!

    And of course check out our boards about the Midnight show as well...

    Thanks for the link to the SJ Browncoats! I figured there had to be a group down here somewhere, but hadn't found it yet.

    My friends and I were oh-so-tempted by the midnight screening up at the Metreon. It sounds like it'll be the place for fun. But in the end it was just too far of a drive and too late on a worknight/schoolnight to be getting back at 3-4am. However... we have been toying with the idea of driving up just to hang out with some of the crowd in line before the movie. If we end up doing that, I'll be sure to look for you guys. :)

    Have fun and let us know how it was. I watched one maybe two episodes of Firefly and just couldn't get into it. But it also took me a bit to get into Babylon 5 too, but when I did I was hooked bigtime.

    Oy. Drats. So, it turns out that my mom's train is hours and hours late getting in. I'm going to have to pick her up in Emeryville this evening a bit before 10pm. Dang.

    Sorry to have missed visiting the big event up at the Metreon! :(

    I saw the first episode and fell in love with it, then school and never-ending classes intervened (ok can't spell) and never got to see any of the rest. And now...the PRIMERE and..once again school is up there taking my movie-watching time!!! ARRGGG...

    Oh well. Everyone Enjoy!:D

    Well, MK, you'd have thought by YOUR age that you might be DONE with school, I mean how many times can you repeat that grade?

    Juuuuust kidding, heh.

    What, you expect Sid to say "nice things" to a Jedi?

    /lol

    Yeah, "The Old Man" lives to abuse me. That's ok.. let's look at how this deal worked out...

    Hmmm, While I do spend pretty much the rest of my life in exile on Tatooine, watching the kid grow up, drinking Coors and talking on my yellow wall phone in my hovel (hey watch the Original UNTOUCHED Trilogy...you'll see what I mean). It's all in all not a bad life.

    And Sid gets: A constant follower who is whiney, arrogant, sulky, raging-hormones, with abandoment issues and tranfered attachment disorder(ed) Brat, who constantly dresses in black leather, refuses to show his face, and is in a non-stop bad mood. :_| :_| :_|

    Ok, Sid...So WHO is the real winner in this round? :D

    **Raises his Can of Coors to Sid, while listening to you..know..what on the Wall Phone!**;)

    I hate you.

    *turns and kicks the kid, Vader jumps in surprise*

    "What did I do THIS time?" he whines.

    You forgot the asthma, and the fact that--after 20 years in that armor, all sealed up with burned flesh tatters and bits of clothing apparently still attached and not removed prior to the armor going on--he's gotta smell pretty ripe. That foul stench that Leia referred to in ANH...she just thought it came from Tarkin. After all, who was holding onto her shoulder from behind in that scene, anyway?

    Oh yeah, it was dear ole dad...

    - Kai, always happy to help a fellow Jedi out...

    Actually Kai, that scene where Anakin is screaming at the end on the table, Mrs. Sid pointed out that the droids were removing his clothes and burnt flesh then.

    Ouch.

    Leather chaffes. No wonder Vader's always so pissy.

    Couldn't prove it by me...or, at least, couldn't prove by me that they removed ALL the burned skin and clothing, since they were attaching stuff before all the removal was done.

    Maybe, maybe not.

    Sure would be a good idea, though! LOL!
