See ‘Serenity’ on the big screen with Grimm Up North

by Phil Wheat

On the advent of the 10th anniversary of  Serenity, and the release of Whedons sequel to the 3rd biggest film of all time – The Avengers: Age of Ultron, Grimm Up North bring Serenity back to the big screen at Odeon Printworks on May 12th.

For those unfamiliar with the tale of Serenity, the film follows on from the critically acclaimed 2002 TV show Firefly. Upon first airing the show garnered a small but passionate fandom, who had latched onto the show’s captivating ensemble cast, fleshed out universe,  and the unique blend of intergalactic travel & western film iconography. However, Fox TV did not see the show’s potential and killed the series after 12 episodes. In the following years millions of people discovered and fell in love with Firefly, mourning its premature cancellation, so passionately that in 2004 Universal Pictures agreed to finance Joss Whedon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The Avengers 1&2) to wrap the show up with an epic feature film conclusion called Serenity.

Since the advent of Netflix, Amazon and other streaming services, both Firefly and Serenity’s fan base has seemingly grown larger and larger as access to this loveable band of space cowboys is easier, yet seeing this film on the big screen – as it should be seen, – is a very rare opportunity not to be missed! And as with a lot of these events, dressing up is encouraged… Expect prizes, posters and shiny times all-round.

Standard tickets are available for £7.50, as well as gallery tickets for £15, which offer luxury seating, a private bar, and unlimited food! Tickets and more info here.
