Cinema campaigners to host free Back to the Future screening
A free outdoor screening of Back to the Future is taking place this month.
The organisers behind the Southfields Plaza Group have arranged the screening to raise awareness of their campaign for an independent cinema in Southfields.
To get people into the swing of things Back to the Future will be shown on a big screen in Wimbledon Park Athletics Track, in Wimbledon Park Road.
Viewers are encouraged to bring along picnics and watch Michael J Fox go back in time on a 40ft x 20ft screen.
Back to the Future tells the story of Marty McFly, a typical American teenager accidentally sent back to 1955 by a slightly mad scientists.
During his trip he must make certain his teenage parents-to-be meet and fall in love so he can get back to the future.
There will also be hearty food and drink on sale from suppliers for anybody who would rather not bring food themselves.
A raffle is planned with a range of prizes on offer, with tickets available during the evening or in the weeks leading up to event in selected shops in Southfields and online.
The event aims to get everybody in the community of Southfields together, as well as friends and family.
The Southfields Plaza Group are hoping to restore the former Riley's Snooker Hall building in Wimbledon Park Road, Southfields, into a cinema.
