This screening is part of Loft Film Fest on the Road, a community-building program that takes unexpected films for free screenings in underserved and unserved rural areas, providing a unique cultural experience. The movies will travel across Southern Arizona in The Loft Solar Cinema, a cargo van outfitted with solar panels (donated by Technicians for Sustainability) to power a 20-foot inflatable screen and state-of-the-art mobile projection system.

“To put it bluntly: if you don’t like Back to The Future, it’s difficult to believe that you like films at all.” – Adam Smith, Empire

Gotta get back in time! The ingenious time travel comedy Back to the Future is a pitch-perfect combination of sharp satire, warm sentiment and sci-fi excitement. Michael J. Fox plays 1985 teen Marty McFly, whose mentor, Doc Brown (a brilliantly manic Christopher Lloyd), invents a time-tripping DeLorean that takes the kid back to 1955.

When he inadvertently gets in the way of his teenage parents’ relationship (and causes his future mother, played by Lea Thompson, to develop a crush on him!), Marty has to figure out how to give his nerdy father (a gloriously odd Crispin Glover) confidence and get them back together to insure his own eventual existence. Funny, touching and suspenseful, this love letter to American pop culture is one of the most purely entertaining films of the 1980s. (Dir. by Robert Zemeckis, 1985, USA, 116 mins., Rated PG)
