After a harrowing confrontation with Khan and an exhausting search for Spock, the crew of the Starship Enterprise needed a vacation — on Earth. The plot of Star Trek IV saw Kirk and friends time-traveling back to what was then present-day San Francisco. 35 years after their visit, Fathom Events and Paramount are teaming up to commemorate Star Trek’s Voyage Home with a brand-new big-screen showing. (The show itself is 55 years old.)
The theatrical re-release of Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home will include the featurette “Three Picture Saga,” where the cast and crew explore the back story of The Wrath of Khan, The Search for Spock and The Voyage Home and discuss how the pictures link together.
“We are so proud to work with Paramount to bring this Star Trek film back to theatres for the 35th anniversary,” said Tom Lucas, VP of Studio Relations at Fathom Events. “Between being nominated for four Academy Awards® and the unconventional storyline, this film, in particular, deserves the big screen treatment.”
You can catch the Fathom re-release of Star Trek IV on Thurs., Aug. 19 at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. & Sun., Aug. 22 at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. — check the website to see if there will be a showing near you. All times are localized to their respective areas.
