Search For Spock in 70MM tonight with Ralph Winter
This summer Laemmle Theaters (in conjunction with Ledjer Film & Theater services and TrekMovie.com) is running all six of the original crew Star Trek features in a series of midnight movies at the Royal Theatre in West L.A. The Simply 70(mm) STAR TREK Spectacular-Spectacular Saturdays will present each film in 70mm and 6-channel Stereo. Each film will also have a Q&A session with a Star Trek celebrity, moderated by yours truly. So far we have done the first two movies, with last week’s event with Nick Meyer drawing a big crowd and sparking a lively debate here at TrekMovie. [see article]

Our special guest is Ralph Winter, who was associate producer on Star Trek III, and was also a post-production supervisor on Star Trek II, executive producer on Star Trek IV and Star Trek V and producer of Star Trek VI, then moving on to produce a number of films including all four X-Men movies.
