KidsCan NZ has announced that Auckland Star Trek fans have an opportunity to be amongst the first in the world to see the highly anticipated next instalment in the globally popular franchise, Star Trek: Beyond.

Looking at the trailer, it looks like it's going to be a fantastic movie.


Thanks to a partnership between KidsCan NZ and Paramount Pictures, as well as support from Karl Urban and Event Cinemas Broadway, there will be an exclusive early screening of Star Trek: Beyond - the first public screening in New Zealand, and one of the first in the world.

All proceeds from ticket sales for the screening will go to KidsCan, to aid its on-going mission to provide food, clothing and basic healthcare in schools to allow disadvantaged Kiwi kids to reach their full potential.

KidsCan CEO Julie Chapman says, “Karl’s been supporting us since 2009 and we’re incredibly grateful that he continues to be so generous. We see him as a great role model for the children we support.”
