To Be Takei
Release Date: September 12
In case you missed George Takei's appearance at his Phoenix screening on August 26, you can still catch the documentary that tells all about the man behind Star Trek's Mister Sulu. From coming out to his childhood in a Japanese internment camp during World War II, Takei's life is as fascinating as his work. With a die-hard fan base and an undeniably strong social media presence, Takei has remained a star long after his days on the Enterprise. For tickets and more information about To Be Takei's screenings, visit the FilmBar website.
Duran Duran Unstaged
Release Date: September 13
Right now you might be thinking something like, "I have zero interest in watching a filmed Duran Duran concert." You might be changing your tune, though, once you find out just who directed the band's stage performance for that particular show though, because it just so happens that cult film director David Lynch is the man with the plan for Duran Duran (sorry). The concert will likely be an odd, visually intense ride through the David Lynch aesthetic set to the '80s band's music. With the first night's showing on September 10 already sold out, you'll want to jump on the Saturday night showing and get tickets from the FilmBar website. If that ends up selling out, too, you can just see the David Bowie documentary showing there later in the month.
