Meet Marty McFly under the stars at UVic

Leukemia and Lymphoma Society hosting movie event, signing up volunteers for Light the Night

Lace up your high-tops, throw on some Rick Astley and get ready to gun it to ’88.

Back to the Future will be showing on an outdoor screen at the University of Victoria Saturday night (July 21) as part of the 2012 Light the Night Kick Off Party.

The movie event, which starts at 6:30 p.m. with a barbecue – admission is by donation – is organized by the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Canada and raises money for blood cancer research.

It also provides participants with the opportunity to sign up for September’s Light the Night Walk.

The screen will be set up in parking lot 10 near Gordon Head and Cedar Hill Cross roads, so don’t forget a low-rise lawn chair or pillow.

In addition to Doc Brown and Marty McFly on the big screen at dusk, expect to see outdoor games and activities.

There will also be prizes for the best-dressed era costume, so try to think outside the box: no puffy vests with jean jackets.
