Cineplex beams Shatner documentary

Star Trek fans, set your phasers to stun! William Shatner’s new documentary, The Captains, lands in participating movie theatres across Canada on Thursday at 7 p.m. (local time) for a one-night only presentation.

This special event, presented by Cineplex Entertainment’s Front Row Centre Events and Ballinran Entertainment, is the final frontier to see this highly anticipated documentary in theatres.

Written and directed by Shatner, The Captains is a feature length documentary that “boldly goes where no man has gone before,” giving viewers an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at one of the most durable and profitable franchises in entertainment history, and the men and women who made the Star Trek brand an international phenomenon since 1966.

“Movie theatre seats across the country are the closest fans can get to the captain’s chair on this voyage that looks at the iconic role of a Star Trek captain,” said Pat Marshall, vice-president, communications and investor relations, Cineplex. “Trekkies will not want to miss this one-night only event.”

Tickets can be purchased at participating theatre box offices, through the Cineplex Mobile Apps and online at www.cineplex.com/events or at the mobile site m.cineplex.com.

The Captains shows in Vernon Oct. 13 at 7 p.m.  at Galaxy Cinemas, 2306 Highway 6.
