Movie review by Robert Geiger for CaryCitizen.

Cary, NC – First off, a little disclaimer. I’ve been a Star Trek fan since the original series aired when I was growing up in the 60-70’s. I’ve seen every episode and movie of every series with all the crews and captains over the years. I’m a child of the “space age” inspired by vision and possibility of humanity reaching for the stars.

Last Moments of the Galaxy Theater

galaxy-theater-cary-1

Cary, NC – CaryCitizen reader David Gill shared with us his photographs of the last moments of the Galaxy Theater in Cary.

End of the Galaxy

The Galaxy Theater, at the corner of Cary Towne Boulevard and S.E. Maynard Road, showed art films and foreign films. But the Galaxy owed many months rent to York Properties and closed their doors in November. York plans to redevelop the site around a Harris Teeter supermarket.

And so, the Galaxy came crashing down in a cloud of dust just over a week ago.

Last Moments

David Gill captured the last moments of the Galaxy. Visit Flickr to see the complete slideshow.
