Following the trend of big events playing in movie theaters, Paramount is going big screen with an anniversary event for “Star Trek: The Next Generation.”
The first season Blu-ray will be out July 24, and at 7 p.m. July 23, Fathom Events will present two episodes in move theaters, plus some behind-the-scenes interviews on the Blu-ray conversion.
Tickets go on sale Friday at the Fathom Events website and at participating theaters. So far, theaters in Ann Arbor, Canton Township, Sterling Heights, Walled Lake and Ypsilanti have signed on locally. See the full list online.
The two episodes are “Where No One Has Gone Before” (Ep. 106) and “Datalore” (Ep. 114), both from the first season. According to Fathom, they were handpicked by “TNG’s” Mike and Denise Okuda, who will introduce the episodes at the event.
