'Back to the Future' Gets 30th Anniversary Live Orchestra Screenings
There's been endless celebration of the 30th anniversary of Ghostbusters this year with LEGO sets and Krispy Kreme doughnuts, but next year, another 80s favorite will be celebrating 30 years as well. Next year, Back to the Future will be 30 years old, and while we haven't heard about any special plans Universal Pictures may have to celebrate, there will be one cool event that fans can try to take advantage of in 2015. Variety reports Back to the Future will get special screenings around the world with a live orchestra utilized to play Alan Silvestri's signature score, just like the Star Trek reboot did this year. More below!
IMG Artists and the Gorfaine/Schwartz Agency are behind the anniversary event which will kick off with a world premiere in Lucerne, Switzerland in late May 2015, featuring the 21st Century Orchestra. That's the only venue revealed so far, but there will be plenty of other chances to catch this special screening of Back to the Future, and you won't have to go to Europe to partake in them. In addition to seeing the film in this unique manner, composer Alan Silvestri is also composing 15 minutes of new music that will be played at these events. Stay tuned to find out when and where you can check this out.
