We were hooked the second we heard Marty McFly take one look at the souped-up car and say, “Wait a minute Doc, uh, are you telling me you built a time machine, out of DeLorean?”

Now you can go back in time, when the Barrie Film Festival’s Summer Outdoor Film Season kicks off on June 2 at the waterfront, with a screening of Back to the Future. Presented free of charge by the City of Barrie in partnership with the Barrie Film Festival, the 1985 movie is directed by Robert Zemeckis and features Canadian actor Michael J. Fox as Marty McFly.

The screening of the PG rated comedy, also starring Lea Thompson and Crispin Glover, is slated to start, weather permitting, at dusk (approximately 9 p.m.) down on Centennial Beach. Admission is free. The rain date is June 9.

A non-profit organization, the Barrie Film Festival provides film fans unique experiences through year-round programming.

The summer outdoor film screenings feature family-friendly films free of charge to the Barrie community. These screenings are a good fit in collaboration with the Lawn Chair Luminata: Waterfront Series, which brings together theatre, music, film and art set in Heritage and Centennial Parks in downtown Barrie.

More information on this season’s outdoor movies can be found on the Barrie Film Festival’s website.
