The motorcycle from the movie Akira.

Celebrating the museum’s 25th anniversary and strong connection to Hollywood, we have collaborated with the Comic-Con Museum to create our newest exhibition, Hollywood Dream Machines: Vehicles of Science Fiction and Fantasy. On May 4th, we invite you to join us for the exhibition’s preview night, where you’ll experience the hundreds of stories and artifacts prior to the public opening. The night will be elevated by live entertainment, an immersive augmented reality experience, gourmet appetizers, and cocktails.

Hollywood Dream Machines: Vehicles of Science Fiction and Fantasy explores cult classic films and stories that have envisioned fantastic futuristic worlds, technologies, characters and cars. Through props, design drawings and physical vehicle models, this exhibit brings pop culture’s visions of dystopian, utopian, and science fiction worlds to life.

Featured films include, but are not limited to, Black Panther (2018), The Hunger Games (2012), Transformers (2007), Mad Max: Fury Road (2016), and Blade Runner (1982).
