Space fantasy meets space adventure…
KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, Fla. (May 5, 2009) – Paramount Pictures’ Star Trek, directed by J.J. Abrams, will open at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex (KSCVC), home to a five-and-a-half story tall IMAX® Theater, on Thursday, May 7, 2009. The new Star Trek movie, based on the American science fiction entertainment series, has been digitally re-mastered into the unparalleled image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience®. Audiences will be virtually transported to experience the non-stop action and mind-blowing visual effects in a larger-than-life way that only IMAX can deliver.
The greatest adventure of all time begins with Star Trek, the incredible story of a young crew’s maiden voyage onboard the most advanced starship ever created: the U.S.S. Enterprise. On a journey filled with action, comedy and cosmic peril, the new recruits must find a way to stop an evil being whose mission of vengeance threatens all of mankind.
The fate of the galaxy rests in the hands of bitter rivals. One, James T. Kirk (Chris Pine), is a delinquent, thrill-seeking Iowa farm boy. The other, Spock (Zachary Quinto), was raised in a logic-based society that rejects all emotion. As fiery instinct clashes with calm reason, their unlikely but powerful partnership is the only thing capable of leading their crew through unimaginable danger, boldly going where no one has gone before!
Star Trek will be shown three times a day at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex through Monday, May 25, 2009. After May 25, the movie will be shown twice daily at 4:30 p.m. and 7:00 p.m.
