Back to the Future: Quiz

If you watched Back to the Future in the cinema, then I’m about to make you feel old. The first in the series was released in 1985 – that’s thirty years ago. I know, it seems like just a few years, doesn’t it?  And now all three of the Back to the Future films have become classics, and deservedly so. They are easy to watch and a lot of fun. Time travel is always fascinating.

When Back to the Future II was made, it took Marty McFly thirty years into the future – to 2015. I wonder if the actors and people involved realised that the film would still be enjoyed all those years later?
