On November 5, 2010, a large number of fans gathered at the Puente Hills Mall to kick off a week long series of events to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Back To The Future. It was here that the city mayor declared October 26, 2010 officially Back To The Future Day for the city. See more »
Doc needs 1.21 GW to power the time circuits, and he needs plutonium to generate such an amount of power. While it is possible, it isn't necessary to use a nuclear power source. 1.21 GW is power, not energy, meaning that it's the rate at which the time machine uses energy. Presumably Doc needs the time circuits to be pulling such power for a fraction of a second (as the time jumps in the film are almost instant). So Doc could have built it with either a huge capacitor or a battery, which he would've charged to however much energy the time machine needed (by the DeLorean or through a plug), and then the time machine would use that energy to make a time jump, still pulling 1.21 GW of power. This is analogous to a camera flash, which pulls a lot more power than camera batteries can handle, yet only needs to work for a short amount of time. Doc could have used the same idea for the time circuits. See more »

October is inventory time, so right now, Statler Toyota is making the best deals of the year on all 1985-model Toyotas. You won't find a better car at a better price with better service anywhere in Hill Valley. That's Statler Toyota in downtown Hill Valley.

One of the last movies I went with sister to see back in 86. The film blew my mind. My friends never wanted to see this one. I was happy I went. Many year's latter, I bought "Back to the Future" at Mc Donalds for $2.99 or for some other low price with a meal. The film ages well, and I love it just the same. The director and screen writer mixes science fiction, humor, and action perfectly. A big component of the script is time line theory which drives the story. Marty has many problems to fix, and finds out more than anyone wants to know about their parents. Michael J Fox and Christopher Loyd were excellently casted. Marty and Doc what a chemistry. With the film series one see the many dualities with time travel, that become a constant with the movie. The town clock, being awoke in a strange place, and letters. Keep this in mind when watching the 2 other sequels. The theory that time repeats itself is evident. What a time machine, the Delorian adds to this movie. Worth watch over again. 10 out of 10! Thank you TBS for showing all 3 films.
