Synopsis: A passenger with a deadly secret. Six rebels on the run. An assassin in pursuit. When the renegade crew of Serenity agrees to hide a fugitive on their ship, they find themselves in an action-packed battle between the relentless military might of a totalitarian regime who will destroy anything - or anyone - to get the girl back and the bloodthirsty creatures who roam the uncharted areas of space. But, the greatest danger of all may be on their ship. This is a continuation of the TV series Firefly created by Joss Whedon.

The Campaign: The screening in Milwaukee will be one of 30+ screenings of the movie Serenity around the world, which are occuring on the week leading up to June 23rd. This day is the birthday of creator Joss Whedon, and as a big thank you to the Joss, the fans are organizing charity screenings. The proceeds of these screenings will go to Joss Whedon's favorite charity, Equality Now.

About Equality Now: Equality Now works to end violence and discrimination against women and girls around the world through the mobilization of public pressure.

    I hope I don't sound too stupid, but when ordering the tickets online, under the Charity $10 category, is that the number of tickets we want to purchase?

    You don't sound stupid at all! Their interface is a little confusing, especially since it starts with 0. But to answer your question, yes, that's the correct page to order tickets. I think it you to purchase up to 6 tickets at a time, with a $1 service fee for each ticket.
