August 5: Back to the future

So Friday night, Christy, a HS friend, asked if I wanted to see ” Back to the Future” at the old art deco Paramount Theatre in Oakland, CA.

Luckily, I left my wad of $100 bills at home.

Mix well with 1960s newsreels and a 1950s Merry Melodies cartoon.

Add the fact that I’m attending with friend I’ve known since middle school (~1983). And we’re seeing movie set in 1985, where the main characters travel back to 1955, and forward to 2015.

My head is spinning!
