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
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?
