Where We’re Going, We Don’t Need References

Just think about all the pop culture references you’d miss out on if you never saw the classic 1985 film Back to the Future. When a hungry friend mentions that her flux capacitor needs refueling, you’d be all like, “WTF?!” You – like the rest of the scientific community – would still be pronouncing “gigawatt” with a hard g (suckers). And you’d forever wonder how in the holy hell Huey Lewis ever gained popularity. Lucky for you, the folks at FLIFF are nifty people who enjoy revisiting classic film, so you’ll have your chance to brush up on one of the most important pieces in the pop lexicon this Friday at 7:30 p.m. at Huizenga Plaza (1 E. Las Olas Blvd., Fort Lauderdale). And for those who already know Michael J. Fox’s version of “Johnny B. Goode” by heart, you’ll actually get to see it on the big screen for free (FREE!).
