Why STAR TREK Fans In L.A. Are Bastards At The Moment!! Movies # 2-6 In 70mm Starting Immediately!!

Merrick here...
Elston Gunn passed this along to me and wanted to make sure ya'll found out about it. Seems the Laemmle Royal Theater is West L.A. is running a marathon of STAR TREK movies. The upcoming titles are presented in 70mm (my god that’s beautiful and cool), with special guests discussing each film. Evidently, they’ve already shown STAR TREK: THE MOTION PICTURE - but we didn’t know about it in time to share the details with you. However, screenings of THE WRATH OF KHAN, THE SEARCH FOR SPOCK, THE VOYAGE HOME, THE FINAL FRONTIER, and THE UNDISCOVERED COUNTRY are still coming up – starting this weekend. If these screenings are nicely attended and go well, organizers say they’ll bring along the next batch of movies, i.e. THE NEXT GENERATION films, as well as Abrams’ sequelprequelboot. A list of dates, screenings, and guests appears below – and you can find more info about the theater HERE. I’ve been blessed to see every one of these films in 70mm. If you’ve never had the chance to do so and are able to attend the Laemmle events, I can’t encourage you strongly enough. Their texture on the big screen, especially in 70mm, is unlike any of the DVD or Blu-Ray transfers you may’ve seen. If you've never seen 'em embiggened like this, 'tis a surprising and rich experience. I am quite jealous. Here's more...
June 19 Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (70mm) Plus short feature "Hardware Wars" in Person Director Nicholas Meyer June 26 Star Trek III: The Search for Spock (70mm) Plus short feature Duck Dodgers in the 24 1/2th Century In person Nichelle Nichols and Producer Ralph Winter July 3 NO SHOW July 10 Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home (70mm) Plus short feature Star Trek IV Bloopers In Person Catherine Hicks July 17 Star Trek V: The Final Frontier (70mm) Plus short feature Russian Misconceptions In Person Walter Koenig July 24 Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country (70mm) Plus short feature Don't Deport Me Scotty In Person George Takei
If anyone out there attends any of these screenings, especially if it's your first time seeing the pictures on the big screen, drop us a write-up with your perceptions of the films, their presentation, and the whole experience. We'd love to hear from you. Enjoy!
