Gilmore Speaker Series

Hollywood’s Greatest Chase Scenes

Sunday March 23 - 3 p.m. in the Heritage Theater

Free with Museum Admission – or $5/Lecture

Since watching The Ghost of Drag Strip Hollow at the Uptown Theater in Kalamazoo at the impressionable age of 13, John Lacko has loved cars and their roll in film. Join us for a gratifying afternoon of automotive action at the Gilmore Car Museum’s Spring Speaker Series on March 23rd as John presents great chase scenes and automotive action from movies such as Bullit, Ronin, The French Connection, Le Mans, and Grand Prix. And, learn the truth behind the legendary 9 minute film Rendezvous, Claude Lelouch’s early morning blast across Paris.

The nine week Gilmore Speaker Series is open to the public and covers a variety of subjects. Each of the Sunday afternoon presentations begin at 3 pm and are only $5 each per person, or free with regular museum admission. The lectures are appropriate for all ages and guests are encouraged attend those that interest them most. No registration is required and walk-ins are welcome.
