Monthly Science Fiction Film: Back To The Future (1985): From the Academy Award-winning filmmakers Steven Spielberg and Robert Zemeckis comes Back to the Future – the original, groundbreaking adventure that sparked one of the most successful trilogies ever. When teenager 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-shattering chain reaction that could vaporize his future – and leave him trapped in the past. Powered by innovative special effects, unforgettable songs and non-stop action, Back to the Future is an unrivaled adventure that stands the test of time! MPAA Rating: PG. Run Time: 116 minutes.

Library doors open at 6:45 to admit film-goers and the movie starts at 7 p.m. sharp.

Time: 7:00 – 8:55 p.m.

Note: This is the last film in our Monthly Science Fiction Film series. The series is being discontinued.
