About the movie

Get set to go Back to the Future! Join us for the original, ground-breaking adventure that sparked one of the most successful trilogies ever. Watch as Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) is blasted to 1955 in the DeLorean time machine created by the eccentric Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd). He finds himself mixed up in a time-altering chain reaction that could chnage his future. Will he find his way back to the future?

From Academy Award®-winning filmmakers Steven Spielberg and Robert Zemeckis.
