Moviegoers and car enthusiasts will be happy to know that Petersen Automotive Museum will be opening a new exhibit that will feature over 40 Hollywood vehicles from cult classic films and video games.
“Hollywood Dream Machines: Vehicles of Science Fiction and Fantasy” will be produced in collaboration with Comic-Con Museum, with additional support provided by Audi and Microsoft.
The exhibit will showcase a selection of concept artwork, props, and costumes to explore and analyze the ways in which the speculative fiction genre pushes the boundaries of human imagination. Series represented in the display will span the niches of speculative fiction with an emphasis on dystopian future films such as “Back to the Future”, “Blade Runner,” “Ghost in the Shell,” “Transformers” and “I, Robot”. Key vehicles on display will include the Warthog from “Halo,” the 2035 Audi RSQ from “I Robot,” the time machine from “Back to the Future”, the Weyland Industries RT01 Group Transport from “Prometheus,” the 2008 Audi R8 from “Iron Man,” Bumblebee from the “Transformers” series, the GM Ultralight from “Demolition Man,” Batmobiles, and more.
Petersen will kick things off on May 4, 2019, with live entertainment, and gourmet appetizers and cocktails. Additionally, VIP ticket holders will be given priority access to the exhibit beginning May 1 with a curator-led hard-hat tour. The event will be open to the public on May 5th.
“Hollywood Dream Machines” will run through March 15, 2020. To purchase tickets to the exhibit opening reception, please visit http://www.petersen.org/hollywood. For more information about the Petersen Automotive Museum, please visit www.Petersen.org.
