Movie Info:

"1.21 gigawatts!”

Over 30 years ago, Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd took us on an era-hopping adventure with BACK TO THE FUTURE as the '80s raddest time travelin' teen and his unlikely sidekick - a crazy, wild-eyed, wild-haired scientist. What rose from those flame trails is the heaviest sci-fi comedy ever made - one that is often considered "the perfect movie" without hyperbole.

Now, you’re invited to get even heavier with us at these fourth wall-busting celebrations of time-hopping DeLoreans, life jacket vests, and oedipal overtones. Come floor it with us right to 88 MPH with a Johnny B. Goode air guitar contest before the show, and themed props to bring the movie magic to life, like your very own vial of Plutonium!**
**Not guaranteed to actually transport you back in time.
It’s the raucously fun celebration you might not be ready for, but your kids – your kids are gonna love it.

Finding the Group: A #bttf channel will be created on the GNO Discord server on the day of the event. It's to be used to help everyone communicate and find the group. Don't post spoilers until after the event. You can join the Discord server here: https://discord.gg/d4e9MKScVP (link should be permanent. Please let me know if it stops working)

MEETING: With these types of events, people like to go off and do their own thing. With that in mind, there will be a #awesomecon channel on the GNO Discord server.
