SDCC 2014: Whedonopolis™ Comes Back “Once More with Feeling”

On Sunday, July 27th in Room 6BCF, 3:30-5pm Fandom Charities™/Whedonopolis™ will be presenting our interactive screening of “Once More With Feeling” as the closing event of the con for the 8th consecutive year!

So mark it in red ink on your homemade SDCC schedules. (You all make those, too, right?)

If you enjoy getting your ya-yas out in a room packed with Buffistas and Scoobies, who put on their own light show with cellphones and light sabers, then this is definitely the event for you! And if you’ve never had the pleasure of such a thing, this is your opportunity.

Plus, you never know who may stop by! Such as Nicholas Brendan (Xander Harris), at this past screening!
