The event was hosted at the beautiful old-world Hope Street Hall, home of the increasingly popular City Bowl Market. Guests were encouraged to embrace the 80s style of the film, with pin ball machines, a live band and hosted by "Doc the crazy professor", on hand to entertain.
"Pop Up Cinema is a screening event that brings movies and the people who love them together. Back to the Future was selected as one of this year's Pop Up Cinema feature films due to its popularity, both then and now. It is a film that remains a highlight of its era to this day and even won an Oscar in 1986" said Alan Musa, VP and GM, Middle East and Africa for Turner Broadcasting System.
