2018 line-up for
|Star Wars Rebels (2014)
Tuesday, January 2, 2017 - 7:00pm
Hillsdale Public Library
509 Hillsdale Avenue
Hillsdale, NJ 07642
This group meets on the first Tuesday of each month to view SF and other genre
This animated entry in the "Star Wars" franchise fills the gap between the events
of "Episode III" and "Episode IV." Imperial forces occupy a remote planet and are
ruling -- and ruining -- its inhabitants' lives with an iron fist. A clever, disparate
crew aboard the starship Ghost takes a stand against the Empire, facing new
villains and colorful adversaries. The rebels on the Ghost include leader Kanan, ace
pilot Hera, feisty heroine Sabine, tough guy Zeb and 14-year-old con artist Ezra.
|Star Trek Discovery (2017) TV series
Well, the delay continues. We were supposed to show the documentary about Leonard
Nimoy, For the Love of Spock, on November 7th, but because of construction/new carpeting
installation at the library, we postponed to the 21st. Last night, the moderator forgot to
bring the disc. Much merriment was had at my expense lol! Fortunately, an attendee had
Star Trek: Discovery, the new series, with him and we showed the first two episodes. The
episodes were a nice surprise, a great last minute fill-in and enjoyed by all - particularly
since most attendees want to watch the series but not pay to do so. We continued the
evening at Nino's in Hillsdale. An evening saved!
For the Love of Spock (2016) will be rescheduled for Tuesday, December 5th.
|For the Love of Spock (2016)
The delay was definitely worth while. For the Love of Spock was a personal documentary on
Leonard Nimoy, by his son Adam. Adam's original concept was to highlight the Star Trek
connection, once his father passed away, he expanded it to include family relationships -
particularly between himself and his father and Nimoy's daughter Julie - in addition to
Nimoy's relationships with those he worked with, fans and the genre world. Touching, well
done documentary. Very enjoyable. A double digit turnout had a great time. Some of the
attendees went out afterword and continued the festivities. Fun evening for all.
