Remember, remember, the fifth of November…though not for any Vendetta. November 5th marks an important day in cinema time travel, as this is the date in 1955 that Marty McFly goes back to in Back to the Future. For that special occasion, along with the 25th anniversary of the film’s release, Burbank, CA will be host to a large-scale reunion and re-creation to benefit Parkinson’s Disease research. Get the details after the break.
The “We’re Going Back” 25th Anniversary celebration for Back to the Future is quite extensive, dubbing itself “The Largest BTTF only reunion in history”. The schedule spans a whole week and looks to re-create memorable scenes from the film, culminating in an Enchantment Under The Sea dance to be hosted in the same location as it did in the film. The dance will be MC’d by Harry Waters Jr., who played band leader Marvin Berry. Other guest appearances include many of the crew, as well as cast members Claudia Wells (Marty’s girlfriend Jennifer), James Tolkan (Principal Strickland), Donald Fullilove (Mayor Goldie Wilson), and much more.
