Philadelphia Sci-Fi Screening


A sci-fi double feature will be taking place at the International House Philadelphia later this month.

The two films screened will include Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, and The Last Starfighter.

A bonus showing of the original series episode Space Seed will take place right before the Wrath of Khan screening.

The Last Starfighter is the story of “teenaged trailer park resident Alex Rogan (Lance Guest), who dreams of escaping his small-town drudgery. He gets his wish … when his expert video game skills attract the attention of an alien recruiter looking for space warriors. Soon Alex finds himself enlisted to help save the galaxy from an evil empire bent on mass destruction.

Several familiar Trek faces were seen in The Last Starfighter, including Wil Wheaton, Marc Alaimo, and Meg Wyllie (The Cage).

The screening will take place on Friday, August 23, at 8:00 PM at the International House Philadelphia, which is located on 3701 Chestnut Street. Tickets for the event will cost $15, and are available here.
