Just this morning, the Arclight Cinema in Hollywood (home of the famous Cinerama Dome) became the first theater in the world to begin selling tickets to the new Star Trek movie. So far they have two midnight shows (on two screens) for Thursday May 8th. Plus last night Paramount put up an artistic Star Trek display at the Arclight, in honor of the new trailer. Details below
Be the first
Well due to Star Trek being a global premiere, folks in Europe will actually be the first to see the new Star Trek movie, but you can be the first in LA to see it if you book your tickets now at the Arclight.
So far they have two midnight screenings listed for Thursday May 8th: 12:01 AM and 12:10 AM. If these sell out quickly, the Arclight may add additional shows.
Star Trek Enterprise Art Display
Just in time for the Star Trek trailer premiere with Watchmen, Paramount put up a new Star Trek display at the Hollywood Arclight on Thursday. Visitors to the theater lobby can see three Enterprise ship displays, each encased in glass. All three ships are around three feet long and shaped like the new USS Enterprise from the Star Trek movie. One is painted to be an accurate replica, with both paint detailing and lights. The other two have been stylized by local artists.

The display should remain up at the Arclight Hollywood for about a week.
140 minutes? [UPDATE: actually 126]
The Arclight Star Trek page is listing the film running time at 140 minutes. This is actually longer than previously indicated the film’s producers, who have said it should be around 2 hours. It is possible that Arclight got the timing wrong, TrekMovie is looking into it.
UPDATE: Paramount informs us the actual runtime for Star Trek is 126 minutes long, and they have informed Arclight who will update their site.
