Back to the Future
Since 1970, Cinestudio has been an integral part of Trinity’s campus life. Part of the free and open 1823 Series, Cinestudio presents a curated series of iconic films that each represent a decade since its founding, as selected by alumni, students, faculty, and staff.
Representing the 1980s, Back to the Future is a fun sci-fi adventure featuring small-town California teen Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox), who is thrown back to the ’50s when an experiment by his eccentric scientist friend, Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd), goes awry. Marty encounters younger versions of his parents (Crispin Glover, Lea Thompson), and must make sure that they fall in love or he’ll cease to exist. Even more dauntingly, Marty has to return to his own time and save the life of Doc Brown.
