AUTOMOBILES IN THE MOVIES
Experience some of the most iconic “Star Cars” in existence in the “Automobiles in the Movies” Exhibition. Vehicle highlights include: Back to the Future Delorean, Batmobile, Furious 7 Charger, Magnum PI Ferrari and more.
The automobile plays a key role in the plot line of many films, often adding an element of romance, adventure or comedy. In 1903 a film produced in the United Kingdom called Runaway Match told the story of a couple who eloped in a car to escape the intervention of the women’s father.
The father’s vehicle broke down during the pursuit adding comedy to the dramatic chase. This film is considered to be the first movie to feature the automobile as a central piece of the plot. Since then, cars have appeared in some of the most memorable scenes in cinematic history.
