Just one minor problem, most of the population doesn't live in London.
As The Cinema Museum, near Kennington Station, London, discovered when they announced what was to be a wonderful celebration of seven Trek films (and seven more obscure films, featuring the seven cast members/directors) over seven months in a 35-seater theatrette, plus access to the most amazing permanent displays of the bygone cinema era, when everything was made of woodgrain and bakelite.

A meagre but enthusiastic audience turned up for TMP (I happened to be in London in March), less for ST II a month later - and the staff and a few crickets for ST III. And the rest of the plans had to be abandoned.

Puzzled that there were no diehard fans at the first screening, I attempted to network the Museum's plans to local Trek groups, and via Facebook and this BBS - and received a load of complete disinterest.
Therin, I know it's easy to say after the fact, but had I caught wind of The Cinema Museum showings a little earlier I definitely would have gone along to at least one.
