BTTF Week–Happy “Back to the Future Day”!

Save the Clock Tower sign

The Future Is Now.

Or at 4:29 p.m. Pacific time today, to be exact.

That’s right Back to the Future Day is here.  Soon the future will be the past.

What?  You haven’t been paying attention?  We explained it all here.

What to do?  Why not go see Back to the Future in theaters all over again today at select screens across the country.  But it’s not being recognized only in the States.  Germany, Mexico, Spain, the United Kingdom, Australia, Brazil, Colombia, Chile, and Canada, all will be screening the trilogy at theaters across their countries, and for the first time the trilogy will be released in Russia.

Or if you’re lucky enough to be in Indianapolis, attend the first Back to the Future in Concert, watching the movie with the score provided live by the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra–nothing gives you goosebumps like hearing the score to a film in person and with the movie playing overhead.  It’s only the beginning of the tour so check it out here.  A similar show is scheduled for Melbourne, Australia, with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra performing.

Wait!  There’s more!

The Today Show will hold a Back to the Future cast reunion in New York City on the show.

Harry Waters, Jr., who played Chuck Berry’s cousin Marvin Berry from Marvin and the Starlighters, will be giving a concert in Buenos Aires.

Reston, Virginia renamed itself Hill Valley for the next five days (Christopher Lloyd and co-writer/creator Bob Gale will be attending a screening of Back to the Future II there this week).

BTTF trilogy

For the Back to the Future regular theatrical screenings, check out local listings here for the entire trilogy running at participating Cinemark theaters and here for Regal Cinemas, beginning at 4:29 p.m. local time today.  AMC is screening the first movie at 4:29 p.m. local time, too–check here for details.

Save the Clock Tower!  Save the Clock Tower!

And have a memorable Back to the Future Day!
