You don’t have to wait until summer movies in the parks to watch retro flicks for free. In celebration of MPR’s 50th anniversary, the crew is hosting a handful of free movie nights at the Fitz. This installment features the iconic ’80s classic Back to the Future. Michael J. Fox stars as a time-traveling teen who has to get his parents together with the help of a kind-but-crazy scientist played by Christopher Lloyd, before zapping himself back to the future... in 1985. The cheesy but joyful flick also stars Crispin Glover in one of his few non-creepy roles, along with Minnesota’s own Lea Thompson. Audiences are encouraged to dress as their favorite characters from the trilogy, and beer, popcorn, and other treats will be available. Sarah White will provide R&B/funk tunes for all.
