Back To the Future (1985)
THIS IS THE ONLY TIME AND SHOWING FOR THIS MOVIE. IT IS PART OF REGENCY THEATER'S FLASHBACK TUESDAY'S SERIES. I WILL BE OUT OF TOWN FOR THIS EVENT. I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE SOMEONE VOLUNTEER TO HOST. Back to the Future is a 1985 American adventure film directed by Robert Zemeckis and written by Zemeckis and Bob Gale. It stars Michael J. Fox as teenager Marty McFly, who accidentally travels back in time to 1955, where he meets his future parents and becomes his mother's romantic interest. Christopher Lloyd portrays the eccentric scientist Dr. Emmett "Doc" Brown, inventor of the time-traveling DeLorean, who helps Marty repair history and return to 1985. Zemeckis and Gale wrote the script after Gale wondered whether he would have befriended his father if they had attended school together. Film studios rejected it until the financial success of Zemeckis' Romancing the Stone. Zemeckis approached Steven Spielberg, who agreed to produce the project at Amblin Entertainment, with Universal Pictures as distributor. Fox was the first choice to play Marty, but he was busy filming his television series Family Ties, and Eric Stoltz was cast; after Stoltz and the filmmakers decided he was wrong for the role, a deal was struck to allow Fox to film Back to the Future without interrupting his television schedule. Back to the Future won the Hugo Award for Best Dramatic Presentation, the Saturn Award for Best Science Fiction Film, and the Academy Award for Best Sound Effects Editing. It received three Academy Award nominations, five BAFTA nominations, and four Golden Globe nominations, including Best Motion Picture (Musical or Comedy). In 2007, the Library of Congress selected it for preservation in the National Film Registry, and in June 2008 the American Film Institute's special AFI's 10 Top 10 designated it the 10th-best science fiction film. The film began a franchise including two sequels, Back to the Future Part II (1989) and Back to the Future Part III (1990), an animated series, theme park ride, and several video games.

What we're about

Do you like classic films? Do black & white movies intrigue you? Enjoy watching genre-making flicks? No matter your story or preferences, you're with friends in our group! We will view movies from the 1930's through 80's and we try to meet about once a month. We try to make it a mix of classics being shown on the big screen and options in a private location. Let's get to know each other as we remember watching these movies again as if for the first time.
