Hard to believe that after three seasons on NBC, years of struggle, in 1979, the Starship Enterprise flew its very first big-screen mission in Star Trek—The Motion Picture. To mark the film’s 40th anniversary, Fathom Events and Paramount Pictures will bring the adventure back to movie theaters for two days only, on September 15 and 18.

Tickets to Star Trek: The Motion Picture are available beginning Friday, August 2, at www.FathomEvents.com or participating theater box offices.

In its first nationwide cinema release since the film premiered in December 1979, the original theatrical cut of Star Trek—The Motion Picture will include the film’s soaring overture by famed composer Jerry Goldsmith. Preceding the film, this special presentation will also feature the behind-the-scenes documentary short The Longest Trek: Writing the Motion Picture.

A mammoth undertaking by Oscar-winning director Robert Wise, Star Trek—The Motion Picture boldly took audiences further into the final frontier than ever before and kicked off one of the biggest franchises in movie history. The film became the fourth highest grossing of the year and earned three Academy Award nominations, including Best Visual Effects, Best Art Direction, and Best Music, Original Score.

Starring William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, DeForest Kelley, George Takei, Nichelle Nichols, Walter Koenig, and James Doohan, Star Trek—The Motion Picture sees Admiral James T. Kirk return to the helm of an updated U.S.S. Enterprise to confront an alien spacecraft of enormous power heading toward Earth.
