Mark Egerton, one of the many fine volunteers at The Cinema Museum in London, is looking to make the landmark a home to Sci-Fi movies and its passionate fans. After putting together a season of Star Trek movies, Mark has big plans – so long as he can get the support of his fellow fans and film buffs.
“I was waiting ages for someone to put on Star Trek : The Motion Picture so in the end I made it happen myself - and programmed the season having realised that there were seven main crew members in Star Trek and seven movies that mainly featured these actors - so I thought...why not have double bills with a Star Trek teamed up with a film starring or directed by one of the seven actors,” said Mark.
“Beyond this I want the season to be a success so that it can be continued and we establish Sunday afternoons as a Sci-Fi slot at the museum. I'd love to screen complete runs of UFO and Babylon 5 - so would like to show TV as well as film. But I need bums on seats.”

The Cinema Museum is delighted to salute the original seven crew members of Star Trek with seven double bills – the Star Trek movies from The Motion Picture through to Generations paired up with individual movie projects starring, or directed by, one of the actors.
