Star Trek: Into Darkness will kick off the Nelson Civic Theatre’s digital age next weekend.

Nelson Civic Theatre going boldly

The Nelson Civic Theatre has set its phasers to stun Nelson audiences at its licensed gala screening of Star Trek: Into Darkness

The Nelson Civic Theatre has set its phasers to stun Nelson audiences at its licensed gala screening of Star Trek: Into Darkness Friday, June 14th at 7:30 p.m., featuring its “next generation” digital projection and surround sound.

“I expect people will be in for a surprise when they hear the U.S.S. Enterprise flying over head from the back of the room,” says theatre manager Jason Asbell of the gala kickoff. “I just hope they don’t spill their Romulan Ale.”

Never an organization to shy away from a good excuse to dress up, the Civic Theatre Society will be beaming prizes provided by local businesses into the hands of the best dressed Star Trek crewman, alien, or dehydrated cube (see “By Any Other Name” the original series, stardate 4657.5).

“And remember, should you be among the crushed in the costume parade, like the large bouillon cube who was once an, uh oh, red shirt security officer no one has seen before, everyone’s a winner in a community that can raise over $181,000 to make a community cinema a reality,” reminds fundraising manager Roger Ley.

For more costumes and prizes, all are invited to come to the family-friendly screening on Saturday, June 15 at 7 p.m. Klingon children are so cute.

Regular human civilians who would prefer to just come to the movie dressed as themselves are also welcome.

Gala tickets for adults ($30 and includes appetizers) are for sale online civictheatre.ca, and at Otter Books and Baker Street Menswear, both on Baker Street in Nelson.

Star Trek: Into Darkness runs Friday through Sunday June 14 to 16, and Tuesday June 18, kicking off the Civic’s regular five-day per week summer operation, which includes the return of the Thursday night arthouse movie. Find all the upcoming movies and showtimes at civictheatre.ca.
