To Boldly Go... Celebrating Three Decades of Star Trek Movies and Their Fans


An Aero Theatre Exclusive!

Presented in association with and Geek Monthly magazine

In 1979, Robert Wise's STAR TREK: THE MOTION PICTURE kicked off a mania for TV-to-movie adaptations that has thrived ever since and spawned multiple sequels, tributes, and spinoffs. To celebrate the STAR TREK film series, we've chosen some of the best films in the franchise, plumbing deep for gems in the Trek universe that haven't necessarily received the tribute they deserve. That includes a triple feature of the second, third and fourth films in the series, as well as the new STAR TREK film, a movie that got a bold send-off earlier this year - and kicks off our tribute to TREK this weekend. There's also a 10th-anniversary screening of the affectionate homage to STAR TREK and its fans, FREE ENTERPRISE. All of these films pay tribute to the ideas and ideals of sci-fi's first franchise that have endured for more than 40 years. And we like to think they will live long and prosper for many more. 



Friday, December 4 - 7:30 PM

Montana Avenue Holiday Walk Event: Co-presented by and Geek Monthly magazine.

STAR TREK, 2009, Paramount, 130 min. Director JJ Abrams successfully rebooted the STAR TREK franchise with this rousing, critically acclaimed reinvention. Starring a cast of talented young actors including Chris Pine as Captain Kirk and Zachary Quinto donning the Vulcan ears of Mr. Spock, along with the original Vulcan, Leonard Nimoy. Official Website | Trailer

10th Anniversary Screening! FREE ENTERPRISE, 1999, Mindfire Entertainment, 110 min. The cult classic about two STAR TREK fans, Mark (Eric McCormack) and Robert (Rafer Weigel) who meet their idol, William Shatner, and discover he's more screwed up than they are. This smart and knowing look at the minutiae of pop culture, cinema obsession and science fiction defined geek culture for a generation of fanboys. Trailer CAST & CREW REUNION following the film, including director/co-writer Robert Meyer Burnett and writer/producer Mark A. Altman and FREE ENTERPRISE DVD giveaway.
