WHAT: California’s world famous state parks system is going Hollywood! As part of California State Park Foundation’s (CSPF) 40th anniversary celebration, CSPF has organized a film series, “California State Parks Starring in Hollywood Films.” Films being screened are Vertigo, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938) and Star Trek IV, The Voyage Home. All 100,000 CSPF members and the general public are invited to attend.

Following Star Trek IV, The Voyage Home on Saturday, join us for a Q&A hosted by Leonard Nimoy who plays Dr. Spock in the film.

Dave Smith, Disney historian will be available for commentary following 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea on Sunday and Steve Rebello, award-winning author and journalist and a life-long student and historian of the works of Alfred Hitchcock will be available for commentary following Vertigo on Sunday evening.

WHY: Since 1910, California’s motion picture industry has filmed in state parks, beginning with the silent film Ramona starring Mary Pickford – a partnership that continues to this day.

My name is Gerry and I am from the web site Film Fresh (

I wanted to alert you to a special promotion Film Fresh will be doing on STAR TREK films.

Film Fresh offers films available for sale on DVD and on DivX download. DivX is a technology that allows you to play the same movie file on multiple media devices.

We currently have the entire STAR TREK movie library, and starting Friday, November 6, Film Fresh will be offering a different STAR TREK movie for sale on DivX download for only $6.99. On Nov. 16 we will also offer the STAR TREK documentary TREKKIES for a $6.99 download. This promotion will continue until Nov. 17 when we will have the new JJ Abrams STAR TREK film on the site.

I was hoping that you could inform your site's readers and visitors about our upcoming promotion. It's a great way for STAR TREK fans to catch all the films (including the out of print ones) in preparation for the latest release.

If you have any further questions please feel free to contact me ( Thank you very much!
