It was a B-E-A-Utiful night on Saturday July 11, 2020 on the grounds of The Tesla Science Center. It was there where the US Premiere of the film, Tesla took place in a drive-in format. Nikola Tesla, on screen, towered above the grounds, where Tesla's machine once towered above the grounds.
Tesla, Starring Ethan Hawke as Nikola Tesla, tells the story of a freewheeling take on a visionary and his interactions with Thomas Edison and J.P. Morgan's daughter Anne, and his breakthroughs in transmitting electrical power and light.
It's a B-E-A-Utiful feeling to visit the place where a favorite story of yours took place, and at The Tesla Science Center, it's also where a big part of Tesla's own story took place. Part of the reason why The Tesla Science Center is developing the site into a transformative global science center is due to the fact that it: embraces his bold spirit of invention, provides innovative learning experiences, and fosters the advancement of new technologies all in order to preserve his story and legacy.
Thanks to the filmmakers and cast, the legacy of Nikola Tesla is ever-expanding. Over 60 Vehicles came to the grounds, some of those 60 were even Tesla’s namesake, Tesla vehicles. They Came, they Saw, and they watched. Tesla Owners, and the other vehicle owners came together for a B-E-A-Utiful Night. But it wasn’t just the movie they saw, The pre-movie show included a demonstration of a colossal 17 Foot Tesla Coil being demoed and streamed. Then came ArcAttack, which you have got to see!
In conclusion, we came, we saw! Here at The Tesla Science Center, the attitude isn’t, “If we build it, they will come,” it’s because people are coming to this place, they are building it.
