Join Machine Dazzle for a screening of the sci-fi classic Star Trek: The Motion Picture. The first full-length film based on the syndicated series, the 1979 hit movie reunited the cast from the short-lived ‘60s television show for a special-effects-laden feature produced by creator Gene Rodenberry. Captain Kirk, Dr. Spock, and the rest of the gang head back to space on a souped-up USS Enterprise to investigate a mysterious energy cloud headed straight for Earth. More 2001: A Space Odyssey than Star Wars, Star Trek: The Motion Picture is the franchise at its most awe-struck and philosophical.

Movie Night with Machine is a screening series of five beloved throwback films curated by Machine Dazzle to accompany his solo exhibition, Queer Maximalism x Machine Dazzle. All released in the late seventies and early eighties, these films delighted the young artist and helped to shape his omnivorous approach to culture. Playful and predictably over-the-top, Movie Night with Machine evenings will include costume contests, a custom-designed step-and-repeat, giveaways, photoshoots, and more! The films will be introduced by Machine and will be followed by talk backs with the artist.
