I’m in.

Damn. It’s not coming to Montreal. :(

Me too.

Not in Nashville, TN. Bummer.

Motherfather! Not coming to the overpriced Cradle of Aviation Museum in Garden City, NY!

Ah frak….. I swore I would not see it again in theaters after… 5 times? And here it comes to Imax at Easton. Eh, why not?

Oh why, oh why do I live in this cultural hell, with no Imax. Even within reasonable driving distance we only have Imax domes…..not the best way to experience a real movie.


Woot! I missed it the first time around. I’ll make sure to make it this time!

Im goin to see it again

Oh boy! Looks like I’m going to see the movie a fourth time, although just the first in IMAX.

I might have to go for my 11th viewing…and 6th on IMAX




For Canadian Visitors:

It is also still playing in Toronto in Omnimax (aka Imax Dome) at the Ontario Science Centre.

In fact it has been playing there for the last month or so, and it is only there for one more week now….

WHOO HOO! Emeryville!


In. It’ll be the number three IMAX viewing for me.


WOOHOO! I’m glad Trek is back even though its in the AMC’s IMAX-lite theater. It should be fun to watch again. If only it were in true IMAX…but I still think the film was better soundwise in a THX cert theater. It just had more ooomph, better realized sound all away around. Next time, film the movie in IMAX or at least 65mm. Release it in 70mm select venues AND true IMAX.

The plot holes and story contrivances were big enough on a standard screen. In IMAX you must be able to fly an oversized Enterprise through them.

Oops. My rejoicing was premature. They’re only having ONE showing each day at 10pm. :P

@ 2 . Yup, the feelings mutual !

Oh, very excellent.
Now, maybe Trek can reclaim its ranking over THE HANGOVER.
I was somewhat embarassed when that piece of crap zipped passed Trek.

Saw it Sunday night in Monterey, CA. It was amazing. The detail was really good.

Maybe I’ll fly to canada to go see it… Dammit for not being in Arkansas.

Way to go, Chris is FIRST! I was hoping for this.

Well, the nearby IMAX got ST09 back in late July and are still playing it (they’ve only done a hand full of DMR style films at that location). I was actually planning on checking it out on my bday, which happens to be Friday. For the record, it’s the IMAX at Canada Place in Vancouver.

The one place in NYC that will be showing Star Trek in IMAX isn’t a real IMAX theater… I never got to see Star Trek in IMAX because by the time I got the money, it was too late…and that was at the only REAL IMAX theater in NYC, AMC Lincoln Center 13 + IMAX… Shenanigans!!

Gotta move to a bigger town before Trek 12 comes out!!!


“Star Trek” is back in town at our dollar theater. I gotta make it to see it before it leaves again (and before I leave for Norfolk for two weeks of Navy training).

it was and i think it still is showing at the IMAX in Monterey CA.

Unrelated, but I’m watching Craig Ferguson, and guest Quentin Tarantino just praised Star Trek as well. It seems lots of directors really enjoyed it!

Also in Australia the IMAX in Melbourne is going to show it again starting 17/09/2009. Dunno about Sydney.

I still think the next Star Trek film should be in IMAX 3-D. Star Trek is the perfect sci-fi medium for 3-D. Just the thought of the Enterprise in 3-D, is enough to put chills down your spine, phaser fire may be a bit jarring, but overall it would be a recipe for fun.

Canada invented IMAX and there’s only 2 or 3 theatres showing it nationwide. Edmonton’s 2 venues passed by again. One of them’s in a massive shopping mall, the other in the science centre. Go figure.

Yeah, we spell funny … theatre and centre.

Melbourne Australia fans don’t dispair. IT IS showing at Melbourne IMAX from 17th september 2009. When l read this feed about US and Canada showings, l went straight to Melbourne IMAX, and there was an ad on the front page. LOVE THIS MOVIE, seen it 8 times, but not at Imax, l am SOOOO going.

I was hoping for one last chance to see it in Imax

Confound it all for running out of money right when the movie came out!
(Thank goodness for the local $2 theater)

Wish it was happening in the UK again – saw the film opening night at the IMAX at the National Museum of Photography in Bradford and loved it. Would jump at chance to go again as I’m sure many others would (it was a almost a sell-out for each of its fortnightly fun). Are the powers that be listening?!

Anyone else think the poster looks a lot cooler in its negative form as shown above rather than the bland pencil looking version?

I totally just pissed myself

man, was this a great movie or what? remember when we were all sitting at home in 2003 thinking that Star Trek was dead forever sure to NEM + ENT?

yay star trek!

Hey, I remember making a comment right here that they should bring Star Trek back for a limited run in IMAX theaters, after the big summer films ran out. Add a few more millions to its total box office.

Great move. I saw it on the last day it was at the local IMAX theater. It was awesome. For my third viewing.

Awesome. I look forward to seeing it again, even if is at the IMAX-mini.

Come back to UK Imax’s to :( Just as long as its the london BFI one:(

Sorry to double post but keep looking at this for the BFI Imax

Could be coming back to bfi imax in London but no dates on the site:(

How awesome! I am going to see it in IMAX for the first time this weekend. Can’t wait!!

Council Bluffs Is In Iowa, Not Nebraska

Damn it. Shame the only IMAX theatre in QLD is at a theme park on the Gold Coast, and they only seem to show boring-ass tiger documentaries there.. *Sigh*

nice just in time for the anniversary on tuesday guess this is why the movie dvd was not scheduled but still wish season 2 would have been released on sept 8 instead of sept 22

Yet another reason to love living in Garland, Texas!
