I would be more excited about this if we hadn't just re-watched the first season. At least they knew better than to screen "Encounter at Farpoint," which would have been a more logical choice if it were, you know, any good.

Yeah, I'll probably sit this one out. What they really ought to do is wait and screen " The best of both worlds" as a feature. That would be worth seeing on a big screen.

I went years ago when they showed the remastered "The menagerie" theatrically, and while it was fun to watch it with a crowd, the picture was a bit dark and I kept asking myself why was I paying to see this in a theatre when I had perfectly good DVDs at home. And it wasn't as though they hadn't already shown that version on TV!

We ran "The Cage" as a Pay-Per-View feature on cable back in the 80s. That seemed odd at the time.

I'd watch "The Best of Both Worlds" on the big screen as a feature. That sounds like a pretty good idea to me.

I would also watch "Best of Both Worlds" as a feature. I'll be curious to find out on Friday how much this "event" costs.

I also saw the HD-remastered version of "The Menagerie" in theaters a while back, largely out of curiosity and for the novelty of seeing TOS on the big screen, but it felt annoyingly like I had paid money to see a commercial for the new DVDs and Blu-rays. I think this is probably going to be very similar. But it would be great if they edited together a 90-minute long version of "The Best of Both Worlds" for theatrical screening. And I often cite "All Good Things..." as the best of the TNG movies; Generations was a major disappointment after that fitting finale to the TV series.

"Generations was a major disappointment after that fitting finale to the TV series."

I'm with you there Eugene. "All Good Things" wrapped up the series with a bow and a sweet kiss goodbye. "Generations" not only suffered from a poor plot and the unneccesary death of Kirk, but also the fact that it was released before anyone really had time to miss the series. That was a great mistake. They should have taken a few years off and come out swinging with "First Contact". Frankly you can skip "Generations" and miss nothing.
