“It really is an amazing event,” Thompson said backstage before the screening. “It’s very lovely that people still want to celebrate our work and this movie.”
Fox, who is based on the East Coast and has long battled Parkinson’s disease, did not attend the Bowl event, but organizers hoped Fox would be able to attend one of the anniversary celebrations planned for New York later this year.
“Michael and I had an automatic chemistry all the way through (the making of the film) … that was constantly alive, and it was wonderful,” recalled Lloyd.
Bob Gale, who co-wrote and co-produced “Back to the Future,” hinted there’d be a flurry of anniversary activity around Oct. 21, 2015, the date to which Marty is sent in “Back to the Future Part II.”
“October is going to be a great month if you’re a ‘Back to the Future’ fan,” Gale said.
