Back to the Future

He's the only kid ever to get into trouble before he was born.

“You built a time machine…. Out of a DeLorean?”

Great Scott! We thought the time was right to to go back, way back, to 1985… And revisit Robert Zemeckis‘ original 80s classic, BACK TO THE FUTURE. But we’re not just screening the original BACK TO THE FUTURE… We’re (finally, after countless requests!) doing a marathon viewing of all three films in the trilogy on Saturday, May 27!

Michael J. Fox stars as Marty McFly, a typical suburban teenager (circa 1985) who accidentally travels back in time – to 1955! Cue an amazing soundtrack featuring Huey Lewis and the News, Doc Brown, some angry Libyans, the Enchantment Under the Sea dance, and the horror of getting to know your parents as… kids. (No further exposition necessary – you know the story!) Also starring Lea Thompson, Christopher Lloyd, and Crispin Glover.

BACK TO THE FUTURE (Robert Zemeckis, 1985 / 116 mins / PG) | A young man is accidentally sent 30 years into the past in a time-traveling DeLorean invented by his friend, Dr. Emmett Brown, and must make sure his high-school-age parents unite in order to save his own existence.

BACK TO THE FUTURE Part II (Robert Zemeckis, 1989 / DCP / 108 mins / PG) | “Marty and Doc are at it again in this wacky sequel to the 1985 blockbuster as the time-traveling duo head to 2015 to nip some McFly family woes in the bud. But things go awry thanks to bully Biff Tannen and a pesky sports almanac. In a last-ditch attempt to set things straight, Marty finds himself bound for 1955 and face to face with his teenage parents — again.”

BACK TO THE FUTURE Part III (Robert Zemeckis, 1990 / DCP / 118 mins / PG) | “The final installment of the Back to the Future trilogy finds Marty digging the trusty DeLorean out of a mineshaft and looking up Doc in the Wild West of 1885. But when their time machine breaks down, the travelers are stranded in a land of spurs. More problems arise when Doc falls for pretty schoolteacher Clara Clayton, and Marty tangles with Buford Tannen.
