Marty McFly is set to arrive this month! Here’s how you can celebrate this important pop culture milestone in Brisbane.
It’s finally here.
Next Wednesday is October 21, 2015 – AKA the date Marty, Doc and Jennifer visited in Back to the Future II, a momentous date that fans of the hit trilogy have been waiting for.
Here’s how Brisbane plans to celebrate.
Back in Time
This documentary features interviews with director Robert Zemeckis, screenwriter Bob Gale, executive producer Steven Spielberg, stars Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd and Lea Thompson, 80’s Rocker Huey Lewis (who wrote and sang two songs for the film, Power of Love and Back in Time) and mega-fans including Dan Harmon (Community, Rick and Morty). It has been hailed as a must-see for film buffs, children of the ‘80s, and anyone who’s ever wished they had a flux capacitor.
The film will screen on Wednesday 21 October at 7pm at New Farm Cinemas in the Purple Room. For tickets visit www.newfarmcinemas.com.au.
Back to the Future at Hoyts
Relive the timeless classic on the big screen this Wednesday October 21 starring Michael J Fox and Christopher Lloyd. Tickets include a Choc–top and regular popcorn,so don your self-drying jacket and double ties, set your levitating robotic leashes to take the dog for a walk, invite friends out for a rehydrated pizza, and return to the good old days of 1985.

Back 2 the Future Day at Miss Kay’s
If you’ve ever been to this cool George St bar and diner, you’ve probably seen Back to the Future playing on loop on the big screen TV — so you know these guys had to get involved with the celebrations.
On Wednesday 21 October, they’ll be giving every customer that purchases a food item a ticket to go in the draw to win some limited movie merchandise — including a replica hoverboard, framed memorabilia signed by Michael J Fox and more!
