Film Interview

The Art of War

An interview with writer-director Kim Nguyen of the Academy Award-nominated drama War Witch

You’re all probably aware of the fact that the new film Star Trek Into Darkness opens on May 10. If you can’t wait that long for a Trek fix, though, Fathom Events is having a special screening tonight of the much-loved “Star Trek: The Next Generation” episode “The Best of Both Worlds.” This two-part episode (the one where Picard becomes a Borg) has been edited together and digitally restored—with new CGI effects. The event gets underway at 7 p.m. at Rio 24, Cottonwood 16 and Downtown 14 theaters. Tickets are available at the box office or through Fathom Events.
