My Trekkie officemate Joel is flipping out right now: To celebrate the 35th anniversary of Star Trek: The Motion Picture, Philadelphia Film Society just announced it is teaming with, who else, Geekadelphia, to screen all six of the original films on six consecutive nights at The Roxy. “Star Trek–35 Years on 35mm: A Retrospective” begins on December 5th, with each night hosted by an array of local cinephiles, like Phil Nobile Jr of Badass Digest and Dan Tabor of Geekadelphia. There will also be a string of pre- and post-screening events, like Q&As, a Star Trek-themed wine night, a William Shatner impersonation contest, and a screening of fan-made Star Trek Web Series Starship Farragut. 

There are a variety of ways to purchase tickets—individually, a full series pass, or a four pack—but I’d hurry. If Joel’s glee is any indication, these suckers are going to go fast. For more information and purchase tickets, go here. I’ve pasted the full schedule below:
