The 1985 Robert Zemeckis classic “Back to the Future” has seen a resurgence in interest in recent weeks. With no new films being released to theaters, cinemas–especially drive-ins– have been scrambling to find programming.

“Back to the Future” has also been hitting the (incredibly subdued) box office charts, with exhibitors using the family friendly flick as way to pine for the better days of past.
