'William Shatner Live' is coming to the State Theater in Minneapolis

Captain James T. Kirk is now 87 years old.

William Shatner is going where plenty of people have gone before: the State Theater in Minneapolis. 

The former captain of the starship USS Enterprise will take Star Trek fans down memory lane with a live on-stage performance at the State Theater on Saturday, Sep. 29. 

The event starts at 7:30 p.m. and will feature a screening of “Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan” followed by storytelling and behind the scenes memories shared by Shatner of what it was like to play the role of Captain James T. Kirk.

In a nutshell, it's going to be Shatner talking about his career in Star Trek and other acting memories during his 50+ years as a star. 

There's also a Q&A opportunity for fans in attendance.
