Back to the Future

Dir. Robert Zemeckis, USA, 1985, 116 mins. With Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd, Lea Thompson, Crispin Glover. In this rollicking comic adventure, 1980s slacker teen Marty goes back to the 1950s in a time-travelling DeLorean and must arrange his own parents’ meeting, while at the same time try to save the life of his friend, eccentric scientist Doc Brown. With this multilayered, quick-witted blockbuster, Robert Zemeckis perfectly balances science fiction, spectacle, comedy, action, and emotional depth.

Rick and Morty

Created by Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland. USA, 2013–2020, 45 mins. With Justin Roiland, Chris Parnell, Spencer Grammer, Sarah Chalke. This beloved, Emmy Award–winning animated series follows genius scientist and misanthropic, self-centered Rick and his nervous teenage grandson Morty as they dimension-hop to universes where snakes rule, cars sneeze, daylight savings time doesn’t exist, and pizzas eat people. In this rare theatrical screening, we present a pair of key episodes from the second and fourth seasons. Season 4 is available on Adult Swim now, and Seasons 1–3 available on HBO Max.

Presented as part of the MoMI and Sloan Science & Film series Science on Screen.
