‘Wrath of Khan’ back in theaters; Taste of Hamburg-er Fest returns [Events Roundup] – Daily room

Aided by his band of genetic supermen in exile, Khan (Ricardo Montalban) – a brilliant renegade from 20th century Earth – has attacked the Regula One space station, stolen the top-secret device called Project Genesis, taken control of a another Federation starship and now plans to set a deadliest trap for its old enemy Kirk, with the threat of universal armageddon. This special 40th anniversary event includes exclusive information on Turner Classic Movies. For participating theaters, show times and tickets, see fathomevents.com.
