See you, space cowboy

Joss Whedon, creator of Buffy The Vampire Slayer and director of The Avengers hasn't always had the easiest career—in 2002, he created Firefly, a space opera TV series for Fox.

The series told the story of a motley crew of space cowboys making a living on victimless crime after fighting on the losing side of an interplanetary civil war. Melding social commentary, grit and whimsy, the show was absolutely brilliant, garnering a feverish fan base… of course Fox cancelled it after one season. 

Serenity, Whedon's 2005 sci-fi epic, finishes the Firefly story. It features Oscar-Nominated actor Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years a Slave) as the villainous Operative.

Do yourself a favor—binge on this cult-classic series on Netflix, and then show up to The State Theater for a Midnight screening that will take you into deep space!

Saturday, June 21, Midnight. $7. State Theater, 233 S. State St. 734-761-8667. michtheater.org
