Fox shuts down Buffy night at the Parkway

From the good people of the parkway comes this awful missive:

Fox Studios has abruptly decided to cancel ALL theatrical bookings of their
popular TV shows, BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER and FIREFLY. No reason was given.
This includes the upcoming October 18 show at Parkway and October 25 show at
Cerrito.

We apologize but the fans have to complain directly to Fox. Yes, we got
screwed too, since Joss Whedon Night is one of our most popular regular
events, but you as patrons can say things we as a business cannot.

Fill in THAT blank.

Cheers, Speakeasy Theaters

Isn’t that just a stake in the heart? I’ve seen Buffy twice at the Parkway, and both times it’s been a glorious, friendly affair. Everyone sang along, shouted at that screen. One woman came with a giant bag full of plush bunnies to hurl into the audience during one of the numbers. It’s great and spontaneous fun and geeky as all hell. But now it has to stop. No reason was given, but my guess is that people showing DVDs they personally bought doesn’t put enough cash in Fox’s wallet. Or maybe Fox just hates San Francisco and the Bay Area. Who knows?

    I long for a future where the studios don’t crush the life out of our great creators. At least Trent Reznor is well on the way.

    BULLLSH*T BULLSH*T!

    Man, that is crap!!!! I kick myself harder now for not making it to this event yet. Ugh. That’s horrible.

    Why don’t they get it? People usually end up MORE likely to drop a dime on the product if exposed to it initially. Others who own the complete series on DVD already, uh, own it, so what’s the issue there.

    Ugh. Awful.
