Join us on Wednesday, June 19th at 7:30pm at the Tivoli Theatre for a special screening of Framing John DeLorean. There will be a post-screening Q&A with producer Tamir Ardon and author Hillel Levin. Ardon, who grew up in Naperville, saw Back to the Future at the Tivoli theatre when he was 5-years-old. Levin wrote the definitive biography of John Delorean, Grand Delusions. Several local DeLorean enthusiasts will be in attendance to show their cars in front of the theatre.
Money, power, politics, drugs, scandal, and fast cars. The incredible story of John DeLorean is the stuff of a Hollywood screenwriter’s dreams. But who was the real John DeLorean? To some, he was a renegade visionary who revolutionized the automobile industry. To others, he was the ultimate con man. For the first time, Framing John DeLorean recounts the extraordinary life and legend of the controversial automaker, tracing his meteoric rise through the ranks of General Motors, his obsessive quest to build a sports car that would conquer the world, and his shocking fall from grace on charges of cocaine trafficking. Interweaving a treasure trove of archival footage with dramatic vignettes starring Alec Baldwin, Framing John DeLorean is a gripping look at a man who gambled everything in his pursuit of the American Dream.
