WHO KILLED THE ELECTRIC CAR - showing in Milwaukee, WI April 19th, 2009

WHO KILLED THE ELECTRIC CAR? is going to be playing at 1:30pm on Sunday, April 19th! It's at the TIMES Cinema located at 5906 W. Vliet Street, (Washington Heights Neighborhood) Milwaukee 414.453.3128

I am trying to get a couple of electric cars over and have them parked out front of the theater before the showing. I believe there is going to be discussion after the show as well.


Times Cinema :: Milwaukee, WI


Please share this information with your friends, maybe a few can make it up this way!

How did you pull that off, do you work there?

Too bad I'm so far away or I'd certainly take the trip just to discuss theory and ideas with people.

Nope! But it is one of the last remaining single-screen theaters in the area. They often run old films, 3-D, and a lot of unusual things, including documentaries!

Don't miss this chance to see ELECTRIC CAR on the big screen!

The movie is showing tomorrow!

Right now, I am planning on driving my truck, towing the Metro into the city.

I am going to a friends house, where he has a Citicar. Then we will both drive our electric cars to the movie.

Boy, I could almost make it, but no cigar. Perhaps next time.

I'd probably get ticked off anyway.

Well, it was a good showing.

The Milwaukee Hybrid Group had several Prii on display, as well as the new Insight.



Brian's truck was there, as was Rich's Citicar, and my Electro-Metro.







After the showing, there was a little bit of discussion about fuel economy, climate change, etc.

Thanks to Pizzeria Tazza for their pizza sponsorship of the Milwaukee Electric Car Club!


Their pizza delivery vehicle will eventually be converted to FULL ELECTRIC!!
If you are in the area, please stop by or order out!
