Great Scott!

Today is the day! It’s Back to the Future Day! Today is the day that Marty McFly went into the future! Fans of the Back to the Future trilogy have been awaiting this day, as well as their hoverboards, which still have not arrived! Seriously, Mattel? Get with it. Anyway, while we may not have flying cars, hoverboards, clothing that automatically adjusts, or dehydrated pizza, but we still have made quite a lot of technological advances. The Back to the Future films have always been a favorite of mine, especially the third film. My favorite scene happens early when Doc needs to send Marty to 1885, from 1955, and does from a drive-in movie theatre that is western themed called the Pohatche. It is one beautiful drive-in, and I did some digging to see if it was real, or made up, and the background, which is Monument Valley, was a matte. I learned that the drive-in was in fact built just for that scene, and I came across this t-shirt, which I instantly had to buy.

I wore it out shopping for a flapper gown (for an event in April, I plan super ahead) before going into work for the day. I am kind of bummed I didn’t have the day off, I would have loved to have returned to Universal Studios or ran around completing this fabulous Back to the Future filming location map! I hope to visit each of these locations sooner or later though. How about you? Are you a Back to the Future Fan? Are you disappointed in our lack of hoverboards?

  1. My husband and I are both back to the future fans. I heard they did invent a hoverboard but it will only work over a copper plated ramp. Still waiting for flying cars for the general public.

  2. It was that day yesterday, due to the time difference between your end of the world and mine in Australia – so you really have gone back in time for me haha 😀 Love your outfit, as always!

  3. I still have my Back To The Future films on VHS tape. My favorite is the first one and the second one. While watching Marty Mcfly travel to the future, I really wanted more views of the 1950s, this was before vintage in my life became a reality.

  4. Love Back to the Future! We had so many events happening in Toronto yesterday and I could not attend any (so I feel your pain). It was fun sharing in the day though with friends on Social media. There were so many fun posts.

  5. I absolutely adore Back to Future! It was one of those uber iconic movies of my youth that will always make me smile and be a great way to kick off a weekend flick fest. 🙂

    This is such a charmingly fun outfit – I know, I know, broken record, but you rock in red!!!
