They don't make movies like they used to, at least not Star Trek movies with the original cast. So don't miss a special showing of the director's edition of the original Star Trek movie, playing on big screens May 22, 23 and 25 in Marietta.
Studio Movie Grill, located at 40 Powers Ferry Rd SE in Marietta, will host the special three-day showing of the 1979 movie, the first full-length feature made following the cancellation of the original Star Trek television series.
"Star Trek: The Motion Picture" features the main characters from the original television series, including William Shatner and Captain James T. Kirk, and Leonard Nimoy as Spock, along with DeForest Kelley, George Takei, Nichelle Nichols, Walter Koenig, and James Doohan. The movie, set in the year 2270, focuses on a mysterious and immensely powerful alien cloud that has destroyed three Klingon cruisers and now is approaching earth, leaving destruction in it's path. Starfleet Admiral James T. Kirk (William Shatner) assumes command of a refitted Starship USS Enterprise, setting out on a mission to save the planet.
The movie also is showing on the same dates at the AMC Theatre location in Kennesaw. Tickets can be purchased in advance for either location at this link.
The original Star Trek television series ran on NBC from 1966-1969.
The special showing is offered through Fathom Events. According to the company's website, Fathom is the 11th largest distributor of content to movie theaters in North America. The company ranks alongside Hollywood’s major studios, with limited screening dates and showtimes.
