William Shatner Announces Live Conversation

We Khaaaaaan't wait for this special screening of Star Trek II

William Shatner. Legend. Icon. Raconteur. Delightfully sardonic and painfully honest. For the past few years, he's kept up a hectic acting career, while also concentrating on his one-man stage shows. Now Bass Concert Hall is combining the two for a special screening of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan with Shatner at the helm.

On January 12, 2019, not only will there be a special screening of the 1982 classic (still arguably the greatest Star Trek film), but the man that played Captain Kirk for 40 years across TV, movies, and video games will be in attendance for a post-screening conversation and Q&A (and anyone that caught his uproarious show at the Paramount in 2013 will know how unmissable and wild that can be).

Tickets will be available Aug. 24 at 10am via www.texasperformingarts.org.
