POST-GAZETTE, JUNE 17, 2016 PAGE 5 ,f Honors Original West Ender Leonard N imoy One of the West End's favorite sons, Leonard Nimoy, is being celebrated once again in a new film. For the Love of Spock pre- miered at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York in April to critical and fan acclaim. Ac- cording to the film's website, the documentary "celebrates the upcoming 50th Anniversary of Star Trek through a personal, intimate look at the life and career of Leonard Nimoy, and his alter-ego, Mr. Spock, as told by his son, Adam Nimoy." For more than 45 years in television and film, Leonard played Mr. Spock, the renowned starship Enterprise's first officer and science officer of human- Vulcan descent. For the Love of Spock features never-before- seen home video and fam- ily photos and interviews with Zachary Quinto -- who plays Spock in the new film series -- along with TV series originals William Shatner and George Takei as well as J.J. Abrams, Simon Pegg, Zoe Saldana, Jim Parsons, and others. On June 2nd, the announce- ment circulated that For the by Susan Minichiello (Photo courtesy of scoop.previewsworld, eom) Love of Spock will get a world- wide release with Gravitas Ventures. The film will hit U.S. theaters and VOD on Septem- ber 9th, one day after the 50th anniversary of the original TV series. Paramount Pictures, owners of the Star Trek fran- chise and partial backers of the documentary, is holding a num- ber of events commemorating the anniversary. At a fan event on May 2 1st, the studio enlisted Zachary Quinto to reveal and dedicate a street on its Holly- wood lot as Leonard Nimoy Way in honor of the beloved actor. Leonard grew up in Boston's West End and never forgot his childhood community and how it influenced his life. He revisited the area many times as an adult and -- in the last year of his life -- starred in another of Adam's documen- taries, Leonard Nimoy's Bos- ton, which featured the neigh- borhood and the West End Museum. Leonard said his experiences in public speaking at the West End House and in the theater program at the Elizabeth Peabody House = ... set me on a path, which became my life's work." You can read more about the film in this Hollywood Reporter review, and keep up with devel- opments on Facebook. Leonard died on February 27, 2015 at the age of 83, but clearly, the legend of the man, the actor, and the original West Ender is here to stay. Live long and prosper, indeed. www,depasc CllrTall Wednesday Night Concerts llJllliillilllillil UIIII The Dorothy Curran Wednes- Now celebrating 44 years as day Night Concert Series re- Boston's longest-running free turns from July 13m throughoutdoor concert series, these August 24m for another great performances bring four sum- season of outdoor music to mer nights of great entertain- entertain music fans of all ages ment to this unique venue on City Hall Plaza with funk and located in the heart of Boston. soul music legends Tavares, the All shows begin at 7:00 pm. fab sounds of Beaflejulce, Disco The series is presented by Night with Stardust, and the Mayor Martin J.
