Elon Musk’s Tesla-themed diner coming to LA

Published

on

Elon Musk’s Tesla has received the green light to proceed with its ambitious plan to construct an all-night diner and drive-in movie theater in the heart of Hollywood.

The proposed 1950s-style drive-in complex will not only serve as a Tesla Supercharger station with 32 stalls but will also feature classic movie screens showcasing iconic film clips and a restaurant boasting rooftop seating.

Tesla secured permit approval from the Los Angeles Department of Building and Safety earlier this month, according to reports from industry blog Teslarati, which obtained copies of the documents.

The location of this Tesla-themed diner will be on W. Santa Monica Boulevard in Hollywood, contrary to Musk’s initial plan of placing it in Santa Monica.

New complex

The recent round of approvals primarily centered on the initial grading inspection for Tesla’s forthcoming complex, as noted by the same source. Tesla had previously gained approval for building walls and movie screens back in July.

The public got a glimpse of Tesla’s creative vision when the company shared an official rendering during its 2023 investor day in March. The presentation slide was aptly titled, “Can’t forget to do cool s—t.”

Additionally, architect Ed Howard offered his own unaffiliated concept art, showcasing his vision for a Tesla diner and drive-in.

Musk has been teasing the idea of a Tesla drive-in for quite some time via his social media channels.

In April 2021, he tweeted, “Major new Supercharger station coming to Santa Monica soon! Hoping to have 50’s diner & 100 best movie clips playing too. Thanks Santa Monica city!”

Furthermore, in 2018, Musk mentioned, “Gonna put an old school drive-in, roller skates & rock restaurant at one of the new Tesla Supercharger locations in LA.”

Tesla boasts a network of over 17,000 Supercharger stations across the United States, with locations in all 50 states.

New projects

The Tesla-themed diner and drive-in movie theater is just one of the many unique projects the company has undertaken, often extending beyond its primary mission of producing electric vehicles.

For instance, Tesla offers its own branded “Tesla Tequila” on its website, described as having a “dry fruit and light vanilla nose with a balanced cinnamon pepper finish.”

Recently, the company began selling a Cybertruck-themed cardboard cat bed in China.

Meanwhile, Tesla enthusiasts are eagerly awaiting the release of the long-awaited Cybertruck, set to debut this fall after facing several delays.

A helicopter carrying Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi and his foreign minister crashed on Sunday as it was crossing mountain terrain in heavy fog.

The official said the lives of Raisi and Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian were “at risk following the helicopter crash”, which happened on the way back from a visit to the border with Azerbaijan in Iran’s northwest.

“We are still hopeful but information coming from the crash site is very concerning,” the official told Reuters, speaking on condition of anonymity.

State TV quoted an official as saying at least one passenger and one crew member had been in contact with rescuers. It also said the helicopter had been found, though Iran’s Red Crescent denied this report.

Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who holds ultimate power with a final say on foreign policy and Iran’s nuclear programme, sought to reassure Iranians, saying there would be no disruption to state affairs. #iran #trending

Published

on

Australia’s multimillion-dollar campaign to attract Hollywood productions to its shores appears to be paying off.

The allure of Australia lies not only in its picturesque locations but also in its competitive financial incentives.

The government offers generous rebates and tax breaks to international productions, making it an attractive proposition for filmmakers looking to maximise their budgets.

Despite the recent intake of Hollywood productions down under such as ‘The Fall Guy’ and ‘Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga’, Aussie independents are still finding the space to carve their own creative path.

Rob Fantozzi joined the program to discuss the latest in Hollywood, and showcased his own upcoming project – ‘Omerta‘. #featured
