Students go ‘Back in Time’ with a classic movie

Fresno State’s 43rd annual Vintage Days’, “Cruisin Through the ‘50s,” hosted “Flick Night” on April 22, projecting the 1985 cult classic “Back to the Future” on a giant, inflatable screen.

Approximately 100 attendees were captivated by the time traveling hijinks of Marty McFly and Doc Brown on their mission to save their future selves.

Nancy Xiong, biology major, has seen the movie before, but wanted to watch it again. “I love ‘Back to the Future,’ it’s a classic movie.”

It was the first time Xiong attended an outdoor movie. “It’s a little chilly but it was good –  I had fun.”

Supenpreet Kaur, an electrical engineering graduate student, said she too enjoyed the movie, but liked being outdoors more.

“That’s why we’re here, we are here for the outdoor experience,” she said.

As the movie’s theme song “Back in Time” by Huey Lewis and the News played, Kaur said. “I can watch it again and again, it’s a classic.”

Kaur said she attended the show mainly to get together with friends and enjoy a movie outdoors. “It’s just good hanging out with friends and watching the same movie again and again.”
