The Future is Back! (Again!)

Just over a month ago, I posted about the special silver anniversary re-release of Back to the Future to theaters, and I was lucky enough to attend the screening two weeks ago with my Mr. Boy cohorts.  I may have seen the movie(s) innumerable times over the years via broadcast, cable, VHS, DVD, and other venues, but watching it up on the big screen with a full house of fans was like seeing it for the very first time.  Without hyperbole, one of the single best moviegoing experiences of my life.  I think that's saying something.

While the initial run of two screenings was primarily a mechanism to promote the then-impending Blu-ray release of the trilogy, clearly there was some demand as yet unmet, and Universal and AMC Theaters are bringing the '80s evergreen back to the big screen one more time for a 12:30 PM show this Saturday, November 6, (for the nerdier among you, that's one day removed from when Marty McFly arrives in 1955).  Find a full list of participating theaters here, and if you missed out last time, do take advantage of this unique opportunity to re-watch a classic the way it was meant to be seen.

(And no, I'm not being paid by Universal.)
