Double bill celebrates Back to the Future at the Rio Theatre

Dec 20 2017, 1:35 am

There are only 27 days until teen time-traveler Marty McFly and weirdo genius Doctor Emmet Brown make it to modern Hill Valley, California.

The duo’s adventures to the far-flung future of October 21, 2015 are being celebrated by movie fans and nerds around the world, and thanks to the Rio Theatre, you can get in on the action.

A double bill featuring Back in Time and Back to the Future takes place Monday, October 26, the very day that Marty travels back to 1955 in the first part of the beloved trilogy. Back in Time is a documentary surrounding the making of the franchise, featuring interviews with cast and crew, including Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd, Leah Thompson, and director Robert Zemeckis. Following Back in Time will be Back to the Future.

When it comes to movies about trouble-making teens in stylish vests attempting to avert their own existential destruction by ensuring their parents on day bone, while at the same time desperately trying not to make out with the 1950s version of his own mother, there is simply nothing better.

  • When: Monday, October 26; 7 p.m.
  • Where: The Rio Theatre – 1660 East Broadway Street, Vancouver
