“Back to the Future” (1985)
Marty McFly, a typical American teenager of the ‘80s, is accidentally sent back to 1955 in a plutonium-powered DeLorean time machine invented by a slightly mad scientist. During his often hysterical, always amazing trip back in time, McFly must make certain his teenage parents-to-be meet and fall in love—so he can get back to the future. Written by Robert Lynch.
“The Burbs” (1989)
Ward and June Cleaver have nothing on suburban couple Ray and Carol Peterson (Tom Hanks and Carrie Fisher). Together with their perfect son, Ray and Carol are so clean that they squeak. Thus, when new neighbors Dr. Werner Klopek (Henry Gibson), Uncle Reuben (Brother Theodore) and Hans (Courtney Gains) begin evincing bizarre behavior, Ray is slightly put out. Carol thinks that Ray is getting all worked up over nothing. Ray and his fellow suburbanites endure all sorts of slapstick misadventures in the vain hope of getting “the goods” on the newcomers.
The event is presented by AmeriCU Credit Union and Syracuse International Film Festival. SYRFILM is a non-profit, tax-exempt organization producing film events for all ages.
