For the Love of Spock
Sep 22 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm

A San Diego premiere, Leonard Nimoy’s son Adam has made an extraordinary documentary about his father, a man known to the world as STARTREK’s Mr. Spock, but known to him as “Dad.” Packing in a wealth of information and nostalgia, there’s even a segment in the film that ties Spock’s iconic hand gesture of Live Long and Prosper to its traditional Jewish roots.
