One week from tonight, there will be a free screening of the movie “The Captains” on The Intrepid.
Hosted live by William Shatner himself!
Here’s what you need to know about the film:
“The Captains – an Epix Original Documentary produced and directed by William Shatner. In The Captains, he travels the world to connect with each of the actors who have played Captains over the long life of the Star Trek franchise. Shatner recalls his own experiences in the role that made him a star by interviewing Patrick Stewart, Kate Mulgrew, Scott Bakula, Avery Brooks and Chris Pine while interweaving clips from their respective shows and movies.”
You’ll sit yourself down on the flight deck of The Intrepid, cozy in, and watch the movie.
The Intrepid (located at 12th Avenue & 46th Street in Manhattan) hosts movie nights throughout the summer. You can check out the info here.
Here’s a photo from their website showing a past event:
But, this is a special screening – a New York City debut.

This was our local gas station temperature reading yesterday at about 2:00 pm:
DISCLAIMER: Their thermometer sits directly in the sun, so its reading is slightly higher than the actual temperature. It was ONLY 104 degrees here in NYC yesterday.
Next Saturday evening (7/30), on the flight deck of The Intrepid, it may be be HOT.
Speaking of HOT, I wonder if Scott Bakula will be in attendance? : ) : ) : )
Get your costume ready! I will remind you again next week, but I wanted to give all you Trekkies a heads-up!
