George Takei to host screening of his movie in Scottsdale

PHOENIX — Oh myyy! Actor-activist George Takei will be in Scottsdale on Tuesday to host a screening of his biopic “To Be Takei.”

The movie was released this year on both On Demand and iTunes and follows the 77-year-old through his career as Sulu on “Star Trek: The Original Series” to his present-day activism and social media ubiquity.

The movie also chronicles his struggles as a closeted gay actor in Hollywood during the ’60s and ’70s.

After the movie, Takei and his husband Brad Altman will host a Q&A session with fans.

“To Be Takei” will play at the Harkins Shea 14 at 7 p.m. Tickets are $9.50 for adults and can be purchased here.

Takei was also in Scottsdale Monday night as the special guest at a dinner hosted by Democrat Fred DuVal, who is running for Arizona governor.
