MPTV Community Cinema: FREE Screening of: REVENGE OF THE ELECTRIC CAR

REVENGE OF THE ELECTRIC CAR, an Independent Lens film. Director Chris Paine goes behind-the-scenes with his film crew over a period of several years to chronicle the story of the global resurgence of electric cars. After being recalled and destroyed a few years ago, electric cars are back! The film takes viewers to GM, Nissan, Silicon Valley start-up Tesla Motors, and do-it-yourselfer Greg "Gadget" Abbott's garage to explore the race to be the first and best with the reinvented automobile.

Open discussion will follow the film with special guests Steven Williams, electrical engineering program director and professor at Milwaukee School of Engineering, and Steve Herro, education director for ADAMM, the Automobile Dealers of Metropolitan Milwaukee.

Cinema attendees are invited to visit Discovery World's Milwaukee Muscle exhibit after the screening.

All screenings are free and open to the public.

With the exception of a "special" preview, all events are held at Discovery World's Innovation Theater, 500 N. Harbor Drive in Milwaukee and start at 6:30 p.m.

Parking in the Discovery World's parking lot is $5.00 for the event. Unless posted, parking on nearby city streets is free.
