‘Tucker: The Man and His Dream’ Movie Screening

Jun 16 @ 1:00 pm 3:30 pm

As part of the 75th Anniversary of the Tucker 48, we’re presenting a special “Tucker: The Man and His Dream” movie screening at the historic Allen Theatre (36 E. Main St. Annville, PA ). Along with the full-length showing of the movie, guests will enjoy “live” introductory commentary and a closing Q&A by Tucker historian Larry Clark and Preston Tucker’s granddaughter Cynthia Tucker Fordon. Cynthia served as a member of the movie’s production crew.

Donation: $20.

About the Movie: The 1988 film, directed by Francis Ford Coppola, recounts the story of real-life inventor Preston Tucker and his attempt to produce and market the 1948 Tucker sedan, which was met with opposition from the “Big Three automobile makers” and accusations of stock fraud from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission for which Tucker was acquitted in 1950.
