While Leonard Nimoy's career spans far and above Spock, a memorial tribute would not be complete without a nod to his iconic character in Star Trek.

Director Nicholas Meyer and Leonard Nimoy's son Adam introduce.
Leonard Nimoy directs and stars as both Vincent Van Gogh and his brother Theo in a filmed production of his tour-de-force one-man show VINCENT; it's paired with DEATHWATCH, a low-budget adaptation of Jean Genet’s 1947 prison-set play, starring Nimoy, Michael Forest and future directing legend Paul Mazursky.
We continue to celebrate the Aero’s 75th anniversary year with double features of classics across the decades. Billy Wilder takes a sardonic look at the movie business and the newspaper racket, respectively, in SUNSET BOULEVARD and ACE IN THE HOLE.

Monika Henreid joins us to discuss her father’s work.
