Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse – the greatest inventors of the industrial age – engage in a battle of technology and ideas that will determine whose electrical system will power the new century.

Backed by J.P. Morgan, Edison dazzles the world by lighting Manhattan. But Westinghouse, aided by Nikola Tesla, sees fatal flaws in Edison’s direct current design. Westinghouse and Tesla bet everything on risky and dangerous alternating current.

The main feature will commence 15 minutes after the advertised screening time.
