AMC Theaters Celebrate 25th Anniversary of "Back to the Future" with Theatrical Showing

Posted on Thursday, September 30th, 2010 3:53 PM by Scott Jentsch

On July 3, 1985, Back to the Future brought a great mix of comedy, action, and science fiction to the big screen. When Marty got into that converted DeLorean, he took the audience "back in time" to 1955.

It's 25 years later, and the movie is coming out as the Back to the Future: 25th Anniversary Trilogy on Blu-ray and DVD on October 26th. Yeah, that's a no-brainer, I'll be picking that up on Blu-ray without hesitation!

If you'd like to see the movie again with, say, 200 of your closest friends and/or people you don't know, select AMC theaters will be celebrating the movie's 25th anniversary with a special event, titled Back to the Future: 25th Anniversary Re-Release.

150 locations will be showing the movie on Saturday, October 23, 2010 at 12:30pm and Monday, October 25, 2010 at 7:30pm (55 years after the date on which Marty crashed into Peabody's pine tree and started changing the future). To find which theaters have booked this event, go to the Showtimes page for Back to the Future: 25th Anniversary Re-Release. Not too many theaters have submitted their showtimes yet, but they should begin coming in very shortly. If you mark the movie as one of your Favorite Movies, that will make it very easy to return from time to time, and purchase your tickets for either Saturday, 10/23 or Monday, 10/25, in advance.

According to the press release by AMC Entertainment, guests who attend these showings will receive a free 25th anniversary poster to commemorate the event, while supplies last. Each theater will have related giveaways prior to the movie. In addition, guests who "like" AMC Theatres on Facebook or who are members of the MovieWatcher network will be eligible to win a Back to the Future Blu-ray Disc or DVD trilogy set.

Are You Planning to See This in the Theater or Will You Buy the Blu-ray Set Instead?

It could be fun to see in a theater again, if the crowd was into it!
