It is still playing here in one theater, despite HP's release. Who knows...I might just sneak in one more time.
I was reading an article on "2001" that stated that the movie rann in some theater(s) for a year! I think that they were specialty theaters like the long forgotten "CINERAMA" ultra wide screens. I did go to one as a a 10 yr old, but it was a western, not a space movie.

Long-forgotten?

How soon they forget!

Pacific Cinerama is still very much alive. And one of the times I saw Trek was in an Arclight theater (woo-hoo!).

There, there, dear....**pats KJ soothingly** We'll soon have our Trek back on the small screen.

And Titanic was in the theaters forever. (I never saw it, despite that)

I'm not upset at all that the last showing in my area was on July 12th. It had a good run and I only planned on seeing it twice anyway. More than that and having the Blu-Ray would not mean as much.

Man. All you DVD people in here. If anything, Star Trek should be a reason to get with the times and go Blu. Not that I particularly like Blu-Ray since I was backing Red ( HD-DVD ) since 2004, but it IS the only HD disc format now. The new 'Trek plus the other 4 TNG movies in Blu is what I plan on getting soon. I hope it has a DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 sound track.

Did not realize that. The only one I ever visited closed a long time ago.
The one I saw in the 60's had the one large, very wide screen/three projector system. Almost 180 degrees of visual! It was the IMAX of its day. Does that one have the same set-up?

Just saw the site. Then if you have seen one of the 3 strip projections, you know what I am talking about when I say "BIG".

The movie my parents took me to was How "The West Was Won".

I only saw it once in the theatres and once again online. I'm waiting for the Dvd release, the sooner the better, but i think it is still showing in theatres in my area.
