Back to Back to The Future

Doc: Marty! You've gotta come back with me!
Marty: Where?
Doc: Back to the future!

And that's where you need to go this weekend.

For two nights and two showings only, AMC Theaters is re-releasing Back To The Future in honor of its 25th Anniversary. All guests will receive a full-size poster to commemorate the limited release with their ticket purchase. While supplies last of course. According to AMC:
Each theatre will also have special movie-related giveaways prior to the movie as a part of the experience. We’re excited to bring this digitally remastered film back for a new generation to see the film as it was intended – up on the big screen. Bring your family to experience a film that stands the test of time. Or, flash back with friends and recreate your original experience with new digital technology…before it fades away.
This Saturday the 23rd at 12:30 p.m. and Monday the 25th (the exact anniversary date) at 7:00 p.m. are your only chances to see it on the big screen for what is likely to be a long while. Unless you have a 52' HDTV and purchase the new Blu-ray Back To The Future: 25th Anniversary Trilogy DVD and watch it at home. Which, while glorious, is nothing like the theater experience.

I'm ready to hop in the DeLorean, are you?

My five-year-old son Brandon loves what he has seen of the Back to the Future movies. G4 has been playing them non-stop lately. He likes the car and Marty. He has seen some parts often enough that he can even do Biff's 'Hello, McFly' if you ask him to.

I'm tempted to take him on Saturday, but he has soccer.

Sounds like tons of fun. Unfortunately I don't see any theaters in my neck of the woods....I'll have to bust out the dvd and some stale popcorn. :)

We watched them a few weeks ago on Nick. Boy was amazed at how good they were. I was taken aback by how well they've held up (for the most part) over the 2 decades since their releases. That Verne-esque steampunk train at the end still gets me every time.
