Theater flashes back to 1985 for ‘Back to the Future’
Cinemark’s summer classic movie series continues on Sunday and Wednesday from the 1985 blockbuster Back to the Future.
The movie — which launched two sequels — starred Michael J. Fox as Marty McFly, a rock ’n’ roll loving Everyman who has an unlikely friendship with Dr. Emmett Brown (played to perfection by Christopher Lloyd and a head of flyaway white hair). The good doctor has turned a Delorean into a time machine, and Marty buckles up and accidentally blasts off from 1985 to the 1950s.
There are rough spots along the way — namely a malfunctioning flux capacitator and a lack of gigawatts — and Marty’s happy 1985 life is endangered. He has to make sure his parents are united and Marty’s existence assured. Perks ensue, especially the part where McFly’s awkward, bashful dad, George (Crispin Glover), gets the groove he never had.
Screenings are 2 p.m. Sunday and 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Wednesday at the Denton Cinemark, 2825 Wind River Lane.
Matinee and evening tickets cost $8.50 for adults, and $6.50 for children and ages 62 and older. Rated PG, 116 minutes.
