AMC Going "Back to the Future" Again on November 6, 2010

Posted on Thursday, November 4, 2010 2:03 PM

On October 23rd and 25th, 150 AMC Theatres locations hosted a special theatrical showing of Back to the Future to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the movie's release (read the Journal article).

It must have been good for them, because they are bringing it back for an encore presentation on Saturday Nov. 6 at 12:30 p.m. local time at 75 theaters in 28 markets! The original show was titled Back to the Future: 25th Anniversary Re-Release, but theaters are tagging this encore performance under the main movie's entry instead.

Here are some quotes from the recent press release from AMC Theatres:

“We are pleased to again offer guests a convenient time for families to enjoy this ageless PG-rated movie, creating not only nostalgia for parents but also a new family sharing experience for children,” said Robert J. Lenihan, president of programming at AMC.

“A quarter century after its initial release, BACK TO THE FUTURE remains a beloved cultural touchstone for a generation of moviegoers all over the world,” said Craig Kornblau, president of Universal Studios Home Entertainment. “We are thrilled to again offer new audiences the opportunity to enjoy this timeless, fun-filled action-adventure, with its iconic characters and prolific storytelling, on the big screen with this encore special showing.”

“BACK TO THE FUTURE is a beloved family classic and this is a great opportunity to allow families to come back to the theatre to see this iconic film,” said Nikki Rocco, president of distribution at Universal.

“For our 25th anniversary, BACK TO THE FUTURE has been restored and remastered, and it now looks and sounds even better than it did in 1985,” said Bob Gale, co-creator/co-writer/co-producer of BACK TO THE FUTURE. “In a word, it’s glorious! If you've never experienced it on the big screen with an audience, then you absolutely must attend this special event!”

Electronic Ticketing GraphicTo buy tickets for this encore presentation, just go to the Showtimes page for the movie on Saturday, November 6th, 2010, and click on the showtime that appears as a link. Unless your car is equipped with a Mr. Fusion, you're probably not going to be able to get tickets at the door, so this is definitely one where you want to order online and save your seat!

If you can't make the show, or you just want to spend more quality time with Marty and Doc Brown, you can pick up the new Back to the Future: 25th Anniversary Trilogy on Blu-ray and DVD, which were released on October 26th.
