Arriving at the event

We’re just days away from this year’s CSTS event, and we have a lot of new people this year, so here are a few answers to common questions:

  • There are no physical tickets, and there’s no need to print your receipt. There will be a check-in table in the lobby when you arrive. We’ll have your name on a list of ticket holders, and your wristbands and pre-ordered merchandise will be waiting for you.
  • Unlike traditional Alamo Drafthouse screenings, there’s no assigned seating for CSTS events. However, we want you to be able to claim your seats and then roam around if you wish, so along with your wristbands you’ll receive a little slip of paper to use as a seat saver. Once you’ve claimed your seats, it would be helpful to the Alamo staff if you’d go ahead and make contact with your server, but then you’re free to wander, leaving your seat saver to mark your spot – we’ll have a lot of shiny things to look at!
  • We are completely sold out, every single seat is filled, and so we’re asking everyone to get cozy. By its nature, our event is highly interactive, and there will be a lot of folks milling around both in the theater and in the lobby, especially during the first hour before the show starts. To streamline the seating process for everyone, we ask that you please do not leave empty seats between parties. If you’re alone and having a hard time finding a seat, we’ll do our best to help you out.
  • Late arrivals are fine, we’ll be in the lobby to check you in.

We’re almost there, see you all Sunday!

 

Final Update Before Takeoff!

Last chance for CSTS tickets, we are nearly sold out! We have less than 20 seats left available, and they will certainly be gone before next weekend. There will be no tickets available at the door – get yours while you still can!

Doors open at noon, and we’ll be kicking off the show at 1:00 with Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog. Following Dr. Horrible, we’ll have our traditional games with a brand new addition – separate evil laugh and costume contests for kids 12 and under! We’ve seen some very impressive kids stealing the show over the years, and we’ve decided it’s time to let them have their very own games – we can’t wait to see what they’ll do this year!

If you should miss your chance to get tickets to the main show, you can still join us in the bar area afterwards for Whedonverse Trivia Bingo, starting at approximately 6:30. We’ll be alternating games between Buffyverse Trivia and Firefly trivia, so stop on by for a drink and a chance to win a prize for your encyclopedic knowledge of all things Joss!

There are a very limited number of t-shirts still available through the website. They will remain available until they’re gone, or until next Friday, whichever comes first.

See you all at the show!

 

 

Almost There!

We’re only two and a half weeks out from our CSTS 2014 shindig! The deadline to order a custom color t-shirt is July 31st at 11:59pm. After the deadline, shirts will still be available online and at the show, but only in select colors and very limited quantities. Don’t miss the opportunity for a one of a kind CSTS memento! All online sales, including tickets, will cease August 15th at 11:59pm. We do stand a chance of selling out the theater this year, so tickets may not be available at the door. We will update if we start to approach capacity, but if you want to be sure not to miss out, we advise reserving your tickets ASAP.

Our 9th annual Can’t Stop the Serenity shindig is just two months away!

And we’re excited to be celebrating at DFW’s very first Alamo Drafthouse location in Richardson! Alamo Drafthouse cinemas are legendary for their zero tolerance phone policy, excellent beer selection, and extremely geek-friendly atmosphere. We had the wonderful opportunity to get to know them at our special bonus screening last November, and we’ve never seen a staff so excited about the show – almost as excited as we were ourselves!

Due to individual time constraints there was no one available to coordinate this year’s global sponsorship recruitment. This means that there will be no sponsor packs full of goodies provided to participating cities, so we’ll be relying on your donations more than ever. If you have a lovely piece of swag you’d like to donate for raffle, please let us know at northtexasbrowncoats@gmail.com. Cash donations ahead of the event are also very welcome, they help us put on a better show for everyone to enjoy, and all donors (cash or swag) will be proudly listed on our sponsor page.

Tickets and t-shirts are already on sale for this year’s shindig. T-shirts on site will be extremely limited, so be sure and order your custom shirt ahead of time for a one of a kind memento!

This year’s event will once again feature screenings of Serenity and Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along-Blog, as well as a costume contest, evil laugh competition, raffles and auctions. For those who’ve never been before, it’s like a Whedonverse mini-con, so dust off your parasol, Horrible goggles, or vampire fangs for the contest and brush up on your Whedonverse trivia! All proceeds benefit Equality Now – fighting for the human rights of women and girls around the world.

This year’s event will take place Sunday, August 17th, (doors open around noon) at

Alamo Drafthouse
100 South Central Expressway, #14
Richardson, TX 75080

Full screening schedule and Can’t Stop the Music (August 24th) lineup TBA shortly.

See you soon!!

CSTS 2014 Date and Time are Set!

Mark your calendars, this year’s North Texas CSTS screening shindig will be Sunday, August 17th at the Alamo Drafthouse in Richardson! We had a fabulous time at our special bonus Serenity screening at the Drafthouse in November, raising just over $2000 for Equality Now. Combined with the proceeds from our official events, that makes for a grand total of $9,056.69 raised for women’s rights by DFW Browncoats in 2013 –  because you guys are that awesome!

In other news, our dedicated global team is still hard at work supporting each registered event, but due to individual time constraints there is no one available to coordinate this year’s global sponsorship recruitment. This means that there will be no sponsor packs full of goodies provided to participating cities, so we’ll be relying on your donations more than ever. If you have a lovely piece of swag you’d like to donate for raffle, please let us know at northtexasbrowncoats@gmail.com. Cash donations ahead of the event are also very welcome, they help us put on a better show for everyone to enjoy, and all donors (cash or swag) will be proudly listed on our sponsor page.

CSTS 2014 tickets will be available SOON!
