“Joss Whedon has a huge fan base in this area,” explains Nancy Mayfield, Patron Services Supervisor at the Coralville Center for the Performing Arts. “But when Whedon’s long-awaited film adaptation of Much Ado About Nothing was released in theaters, fans were devastated to learn that the closest showing was in Des Moines. We are so thrilled to be able to present the film here in Coralville on the big screen. Within hours of announcing our intentions, local Whedon fans were so enthusiastic we decided to add a midnight showing.”

“Having Megan Gogerty open the 8:00 show will be a special treat,” Mayfield continues. “For the first time in years, she will perform from her Buffy the Vampire Slayer tribute album, I Miss Buffy. Her songs are as hilarious and engaging as her plays. The last time I saw her onstage, I laughed until I cried.”"
