To remember the great Leonard Nimoy, who died last week at age 83, the Screenland Crossroads is presenting a Spock Tribute, a double feature of two of his best “Star Trek” movies. They’ll be shown back-to-back starting at 7:10 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday (March 4 and 5).
“Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan” (1982), is perhaps the best of the bunch and includes the iconic scene where a dying Spock tells Captain Kirk (William Shatner): “I have been and always shall be your friend.”
“Star Trek III: The Search for Spock” (1984) was the first feature film Nimoy directed and is the best of the otherwise so-so odd-numbered “Treks.” Spock only appears in the sweet finale, when the ever-illogical Kirk tells him, “The needs of the one outweigh the needs of the many.”
Tickets, $10, are available at screenland.com/crossroads or at the theater, 1701 McGee St.
