What We Left Behind to get one-night theatrical screening


The long-awaited Deep Space Nine documentary What We Left Behind is heading to a theater near you for a one-night screening event.

It was announced last month that the Indiegogo-funded Star Trek: Deep Space Nine documentary What We Left Behind had found a distributor in the form of Shout! Factory. Most assumed this meant that eventually fans would get to stream the film or purchase it outright on Blu-ray down the road.

However, to the surprise of everyone, it looks like Trek Nation will be able to watch What We Left Behind on the big screen as well.

While not announced officially, the Fathom Events website has revealed that a one-night screening for What We Left Behind will take place on May 13. Tickets go one sale April 12 and include a an two-sided 11×17 poster in addition to a roundtable discussion on the making of the documentary.

The project, which raised almost $650,000 back in early 2017, is meant as a comprehensive look at the series, which ran for seven seasons and ended in 1999. It is directed by Ira Steven Behr, who served as showrunner for Deep Space Nine and produced by David Zappone. It includes extensive interviews with the cast and crew as well as a look at what would have been an eighth season of the series through animated storyboards.

What We Left Behind was supposed to arrive last year but was delayed due to the producers decision to remaster the footage of Deep Space Nine into high-definition. Every indication is that the work was more than worth the wait and that the show has never looked better.

As for What We Left Behind‘s eventual release on Blu-ray and streaming services as well as internationally, no news on that front just yet. But with the announcement of the one-night theatrical release, you can be sure more information will be forthcoming.

Update: it has just been announced that supporters of the Indiegogo campaign will have the opportunity to stream the documentary starting April 25, almost a momth before the theatrical screening that was just revealed.
