The City of Allentown Department of Parks and Recreation presents the fourth installment of the 2015 Movies in the Park series with “Back to the Future,” on Saturday, July 25 at West Park.  The show begins at dusk.

“Back to the Future” stars Michael J. Fox as Marty McFly, Christopher Lloyd, and Lea Thompson.

McFly, a typical American teenager of the 1980s, is accidentally sent back to 1955 in a plutonium-powered DeLorean “time machine” invented by a slightly mad scientist.  During his often funny and amazing trip back 30 years, Marty must make certain his then teenage parents-to-be meet and fall in love – so he can get back to the future.

This movie is rated PG and runs for 116 minutes.

There will be a DeLorean on display near the West Park bandshell which will be provided by Eberhart Motors.

The Allentown Municipal Band will perform a concert at 6:30pm as part of the event.

The West Park Civic Association is partnering with the Allentown Department of Parks & Recreation to bring to you a “Picnic and a Movie.” For more information and for table reservations please visit Canned food donations will also be accepted as a part of the event, benefitting the Second Harvest Food Bank.
