The GOODS from The Cinematheque
Vancouver, BC | The Cinematheque presents the beloved ’80s sci-fi hit Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, screening from a vintage 35mm print for a single weekend matinée this Sunday, April 17 at 1pm.
To save the world from a mysterious alien probe, Captain Kirk and his crew must travel back in time to 1986 San Francisco to retrieve the only species that can communicate with it: the now-extinct humpback whale! Directed by the late Leonard Nimoy, The Voyage Home is a fun, slightly absurd (Spock vs punk, anyone?), family-friendly hit with a big-hearted environmental message.
