Blog : Revenge of the Electric Car coming to The Portsmouth Musical Hall

By sarah | Jan 9, 2012 | in

This month, The Portsmouth Music Hall will feature a new movie with a familiar theme. Something comes back from the dead, but it isn’t the usual host of flesh chomping zombies or neck nibbling Emo vampires. 

Director Chris Paine’s new film Revenge of the Electric Car chronicles the recent resurrection of the electric vehicle by Nissan, General Motors, and Silicon Valley start-up Tesla Motors. The movie is a sequel to Paine’s 2006 documentary Who Killed The Electric Car, a film that has come to symbolize everyday Americans’ frustrations with a system that tramples on innovation and keeps drivers reliant on the gas pump. Apparently someone was listening, because 2008 saw the debut of the Tesla Roadster, followed three years later by the Chevy Volt and Nissan Leaf.   

Revenge of the Electric Car will play for one night only at the Portsmouth Music Hall on Thursday, January 19, 2012. The movie starts at 7:00 PM and will be followed by a panel discussion and Q&A session featuring Gina Coplin-Newfield, Sierra Club’s Senior Campaign Representative for Electric Vehicles.
