In 1979, the Starship Enterprise flew its very first big-screen mission in “Star Trek—The Motion Picture,” and to mark the film’s 40th anniversary, Fathom Events and Paramount Pictures have partnered to bring this classic Sci-Fi flick awe-inspiring back to movie theaters for two days only. In its first nationwide cinema release since premiering in 1979, the original theatrical cut of “Star Trek—The Motion Picture” will be shown at select theaters across the United States on September 15 and 18. Tickets to “Star Trek: The Motion Picture” are available beginning Friday, August 2, at or participating theater box offices.

Preceding the film, this special presentation will also feature the behind-the-scenes documentary short “The Longest Trek: Writing the Motion Picture.” "Star Trek-The Motion Picture" was the fourth highest grossing movie of the year and earned three Academy Award® nominations, including Best Visual Effects, Best Art Direction, and Best Music, Original Score. Starring William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, DeForest Kelley, George Takei, Nichelle Nichols, Walter Koenig, and James Doohan, the movie tells the story of Admiral James T. Kirk return to the helm of an updated U.S.S. Enterprise to confront an alien spacecraft of enormous power heading toward Earth.

40 Year Anniversary

Being that it hasn't been re-released since its original theatrical run, this is a great way for Star Trek fans to see this movie as it was intended to be seen on the silver screen. I remember being really excited as a 6 year old kid when my dad took me on a special father-son outing to the movies to see "Star Trek -- The Motion Picture." I'm looking forward to going to the theater to watch the movie again now with my own son to see this special Fathom 40th anniversary presentation of the very first Star Trek film.
