“Okay. Time circuit’s on. Flux capacitor, fluxing. Engine running. All right.” Everything is ready for Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd) and Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) to get in that DeLorean, hit eighty-eight miles per hour, and head into either 1955 or 2015 in the first two Back the Future movies, both directed by Robert Zemeckis, who has also given us such other popular films as Romancing the Stone, Forrest Gump, Cast Away, and now Flight. Both flicks, which at one point were going to star Eric Stoltz as Marty and John Lithgow as Doc Brown, are being shown at 92YTribeca’s annual “Chinese and a Movie” Christmas Day party, with the first film screening at 1:00 and the sequel at 3:15. They will be accompanied by a Chinese food buffet beginning at 12:30 and lasting until it is all gone. So come celebrate Christmas with Fox, Lloyd, Crispin Glover as hapless George McFly, Copernicus the dog, Thomas F. Wilson as tough local boy Biff, Lea Thompson as hot MILF Lorraine, and 1.21 gigawatts of electricity that combine with Plutonium to help the protagonists blast off into another time.
