The Captains Screening Feat. William Shatner In NY & LA; With Costume Contests & A Chance To Meet The Man Himself
As all of you probably know by now, William Shatner's The Captains documentary is set to premiere on EPIX July 22nd. In fact, we have a special contest were you can win The Captains schwag and be a part of Trek fandom history. Aside from that, there are two special events set for July 25th & 30th that include The Shat, Trek costuming (or cosplay as the kids call it), and a whole bunch of dead celebrities. Okay, okay, so maybe that last part seems morbid, but it's not, we swear. Oh, and best of all, it's FREE.
On July 25th, EPIX will be holding a special screening of The Captains at the Hollywood Forever Memorial Park in Los Angeles that includes a showing of the doc (of course) with an in person appearance and introduction by Shatner, himself, plus a Trek costume contest with the lucky winner getting a chance to hang with the original James Tiberius Kirk. So be sure to show up in your best Landru, Mugatu, or even Nomad costume to win the special meet and greet with The Big Man.
For those who don't know; the Hollywood Forever Memorial Park is the final resting place to more of Hollywood’s founders and stars than anywhere else on earth. Founded in 1899, the cemetery was an integral part of the growth of early Hollywood. Paramount Studios was built on the back half of the original Hollywood Cemetery, where the studio is still in operation today. The cemetery of choice for most of the founders of Hollywood’s great studios, as well as writers, directors, and, performers, Hollywood Forever Cemetery is now listed on the National Register of Historic Sites. Visitors come from all over the world to pay respects Johnny Ramone, Cecil B. DeMille, Jayne Mansfield, Rudolph Valentino, Douglas Fairbanks, and hundreds more of Hollywood’s greatest stars.
