If you're like every other fan out there, you should be planning to have a marathon on the day Doc brought Marty into the future. On October 21st, 2015, at 4:29 PM, Doc and Marty arrived in a flying car. In their universe, they saw Jaws 19, hover boards, flying cars, and shoes that tie themselves. Although we don't have Jaws 19, people have taken inspiration from the movie, and created self-lacing shoes, and working hover boards. Although, I don't think the Cubs have a chance of winning this year as they did in the movie.

But even if you're not an inventor, you can still get into the Back to the Future lifestyle, and take part in what some are calling the most perfectly timed marathon in the 21st century. This marathon gets you through each of the movies, but that's not what's so special about it. The marathon is perfectly timed, so that when Doc says the line "We're descending towards Hill Valley, California at 4:29 PM on Wednesday, October 21st, twenty-fifteen." The actual time in real life is 4:29 on Wednesday, October 21st, 2015.

This is a once in a life time opportunity. You might have to take a half-day at work, but for this moment, it will be worth it. How often can someone say that they were in the same time and date the movie was in? People have been waiting for this moment since July 3rd, 1985, since the movie first came out! By watching the movie at that exact time, on that exact date, you are turning into a time traveler yourself. You might not be able to travel to 1985, or 1955, but you can join the thousands of others watching this marathon, and travel, back to the future. Be just like Doc and Marty, and travel to the same moment they did. Even if you can't see the Cubs win a series, you can travel through time with Doc and Marty. So get on over to Hill Valley, California, and start this marathon on 10-21-2015.

Here's the Marathon Schedule.
