It’s been a great year for Back to the Future fans, what with the release of the Marty McFly replica self-lacing Nikes and the long awaited -and much disputed- arrival of the hoverboard.
Fans of the trilogy will also be well aware that 2015 marks the 30 year anniversary of the Back to the Future franchise and, most importantly, October 21st is the date that Marty travels to in the future (despite what this cheeky Tumblr account may try to make you think).
We won’t go into too much depth about the similarities and differences between the fantasy version of 2015 versus actual 2015. Let’s just say that if he’d used holograms of deceased popstars in lieu of holographic movie advertisements, as well as swapping Wild Gunman for Tetris or Pacman, director Robert Zemeckis might have been accused of witchcraft. I’m also 90% sure I saw a hipster boy wearing Marty Jr’s outfit in Ruzafa earlier…
In celebration of the films coming of age, so to speak, on Wednesday 21st October cinemas worldwide are set to run trilogy marathons, presumably filled to the rafters with 80s movie fanatics wearing red body warmers and camp cowboy garb. But where can fans watch the films in Valencia?
The Cinesa cinema in Bonaire shopping centre is projecting all three films starting at 18:00. Pay €8 for each film or buy a trilogy bono for €21. Despite certain snakry comments on social media, all films will be projected in VOSE – original version with Spanish subtitles.
Parque Comercial Bonaire,
The trilogy screening also kicks of at 18:00 in Kinepolis priced at €5.30 per VOSE film.
If you’d rather stay in the city, then you can head to Cines LYS where they’ll be projecting the marathon in VOSE starting from 18:00. That’s €13.50 for 342 minutes of unadulterated, 80s action.
Paseo de Ruzafa, 3
You can watch the Delorean fly around the big screen from the comfort of your own car at the Autocine STAR in El Saler. The VOSE marathon starts at 19:30 with the final film to be projected at 23:15 all for just €6. There’s no doubt there’ll be something quite nostalgic about watching the original movie, the majority of which is set in 1955, at a drive-in cinema.

If you’re working late or otherwise engaged on Wednesday 21st, have no fear! Head to the Fnac Fórum on Sunday 18th to see the trilogy FOR FREE starting at 15:00.

Guillem de Castro, 9-11
Our pick? We’ll stick with Autocine STAR. But, sorry, Doc, if you choose this option, where we’re goin’ we will be needing some roads!
