my local art house showed this as part of their summer kidsfest. i would venture to say that there were more twenty-something's than children. seeing back to the future on the big screen (a print mind you, not a projected dvd) was like seeing it for the first time. such a fun movie and cornerstone of my childhood.
Don't stop, Wilbur! Drive! Who could forget this 1985 time capsule? I was born in 1987, so it's hard for me to distinguish factual from fictional nostalgia (like 4 gas station attendants for one car). In my opinion, all three Back to the Future movies are on the A-list of adventure movies and should be watched together.
As many films as I have seen and loved, this remains my favourite. It encompasses my fascination with the tension between technology and humanity, my love for science-fiction and time travel, dysfunctional family drama, great physical comedy, and the early unfiltered, unpretentious genius of a young Robert Zemeckis.
