Trek movies on the big screen in London!

How exciting! My current, first, trip to London - and bravery learning how to plan a solo journey on the Tube - coincided with a screening of "Star Trek: The Motion Picture" (theatrical version) yesterday at the Cinema Museum, near Kennington.

A Facebook friend sent me a link with only hours to spare, causing me to reorganize my day. It was soooo worth it!

I was hoping some TrekBBS people might have been there, but most seemed to be Cinema Museum regulars, and me. They were a very friendly and welcoming bunch! And, for the price of your ticket to two movies, you get to roam the museum, which is filled with exhibits of wonderful movie theatre memorabilia from decades past!

ST:TMP was paired with Shatner's disturbing b/w film he made with Roger Corman: "The Intruder" from 1962: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0055019/ which I'd never seen before. Reminded me a bit of "To Kill a Mockingbird" and even "The Twilight Zone" - in fact it had acting appearances by SF and TZ writers as actors (Charles Beaumont, who also wrote the screenplay, TOS's George Clayton Johnson, in his distinctive, long, white beard, and even William F Nolan).

I really hope London's SF media community embraces this planned season of TMP thru to "Generations". Remember to book: the theatrette only takes 36 patrons.

A really great idea for showcasing the work of the ST actors! You have six more chances of getting there! (Probably too far for me to come. Where's my transporter?)
