CL Critic Curt Holman Recommends: The best Star Trek movie gets a 35mm screening for its 40th anniversary. As Captain Kirk (William Shatner) wrestles with a midlife crisis, an old foe (Ricardo Montalban) seeks revenge in set pieces that play like a submarine movie in space. “Khaaannn!!!” — CH
From the venue:As Adm. James T. Kirk (William Shatner) and Capt. Spock (Leonard Nimoy) monitor trainees at Starfleet Academy, another vessel from the United Federation of Planets is about to try out the planet-creating Genesis Device in a seemingly deserted portion of space. In the process, two of Kirk’s officers are captured by Khan (Ricardo Montalban), an enemy Kirk thought he’d never see again. Once more, Kirk takes the Enterprise’s helm, where he meets Khan’s ship in an intergalactic showdown.
