‘Back to the Future’ to Host 30th Anniversary Screenings with Full Orchestra
Can you believe it’s been 30 years since the release of Back to the Future (although you could always hop in your Delorean and change those years)? To commemorate the occasion, Universal Pictures will celebrate the film’s anniversary with a series of screenings with a live orchestra. Starting next May and taking place in various cities around the world, these anniversary screenings will feature an orchestral performance of the film’s score along with 15 minutes of new music by composer Alan Silvestri. The first screening is set to take place in Lucerne, Switzerland—no word yet on United States dates. Other projects in the works for the film’s anniversary include a musical adaptation by screenwriters Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale. It’s set to stage on London’s West End next year, so you could see the movie on film and on the stage in 2015.
Starring Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd, Lea Thompson, and Crispin Glover, Back to the Future was released in 1985 to instant critical and commercial acclaim. It grossed $383 million worldwide, nabbing Academy and Golden Globe nominations along the way. It was designated in the top ten of the American Film Institutes top science-fiction films.
