“This event will give the public a chance to see two of the coolest cars in movie history in person, and then watch them again on the big screen – for free,” said Councilman Nowakowski.
The high-powered transportation vehicles also will be showcased on Tuesday, July 3, at The “Light Up The Sky” event, at Maryvale Stadium, 3600 N. 51st Ave. Bring your cameras!
