Star Trek, J.J. Abrams' big-screen re-imagining of the old 1960s TV series and one of the most anticipated movies of the summer, will get special early screenings across Central Kentucky.
The film — a prequel of sorts that stars relative newcomer Chris Pine as a young, rebellious Capt. James T. Kirk — doesn't officially open until Friday, May 8, but several theaters will host sneak previews on Thursday, May 7.
Central Kentucky theaters scheduled to show the sneak previews and their May 7 showtimes are: Cinemark Movies 10 Woodhill (7 and 10 p.m.); Cinemark Fayette Mall (7 and 10 p.m.); Kentucky Theatre (7:10 and 9:35 p.m. and midnight); Lexington Movie Tavern (7 and 10:15 p.m.); Regal Hamburg Pavilion 16 (7 and 9:50 p.m.); AmStar 14 Brannon Crossing, Nicholasville (7:05 and 9 p.m.); and Cinemark Theatres at Richmond Centre, Richmond (7:05 p.m.).
If you want to see the film in IMAX, AMC Newport on the Levee 20 in Newport will host sneak previews at 7 and 10 p.m. May 7.
