'Back to the Future' Day Will Include a Theatrical Re-Release

Marathons of the entire trilogy will have a limited run starting on October 21 at AMC Theatres.


We’re big fans of the time traveling adventures of Doc Brown and Marty McFly, and we’re anticipating all of the Back to the Future Day festivities planned for the first film’s 30th anniversary. This is also happening, it turns out: Lots of movies.

Just as AMC Theatres did for the 25th anniversary in 2010, the theater chain will host a marathon of the trilogy. The limited run starts on October 21, so-called Back to the Future Day, the day Marty and Doc traveled to the future in Part II.

The schedule of the three movies will run in local time with a half-hour intermission between films as follows:

  • Back to the Future – 4:29 p.m.
  • Back to the Future Part II – 7 p.m.
  • Back to the Future Part III – 9:30 p.m.

But it’s a Wednesday, you say. So call in sick, I reply. That 4:29 p.m. start is the very moment Doc and Marty arrive in the future in Part II. And don’t fret if you don’t think you can travel through time for three straight movies — tickets to individual movies will be available as well, all at matinee prices.

Or if you’re impatient: On Amazon Prime you can stream and download all three Back to the Future movies any time in October.
