Rescheduled - Back to the Future at the Silver Screen Drive-in

September 18 8:00 to 10:00 pm

The 1980s sci-fi classic, “Back to the Future” takes us back in time at the Silver Screen Drive-in on Friday, September 10 at 8:00 pm!

A rousing time-travel adventure with an unforgettable spirit, “Back to the Future” sees 17-year-old high school student Marty McFly time-travel back thirty years into the past and almost unravel his own future.

Marty is a typical American teenager of the Eighties, except that his best friend is an aging mad scientist who accidentally sends him back to 1955 in a plutonium-powered DeLorean "time machine". Finding himself mixed up in a time-altering chain reaction that could vaporize his future, Marty must make certain his teenage parents-to-be meet and fall in love or he'll cease to exist— and leave him trapped in the past. Powered by innovative special effects, unforgettable songs and non-stop action, “Back to the Future” is an unrivaled adventure that stands the test of time!

“Equal parts hilarity, nostalgia, science fiction, screwball comedy, and white-knuckle suspense in a complex storyline wound tighter than a yo-yo in a centrifuge.’ - Steven D. Greydanus, Decent Films Guide

“Shows not only a fine comic touch but also some of the lighthearted humanism of a Frank Capra.” - Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
